TheGreatA !!

But really, hard to see who is the best historian because no 2 historians are ever going to agree 100% on a certain list. Fact.

It all really comes down to how each person looks at the different historians e.g Bert Sugar seems to know his stuff stats wise and on different boxers records but not so much when it comes to his lists + he overlooks modern day fighters.

I like Henry Hascup and Jim Amato, always have very knowledgeable stuff to say and aren't usually bias.
