Hearns' list is a bit stupid. I disagree with a few of Steward's picks obviously, particularly the Foreman inclusion which I think is flat out ridiculous although it's alright in my opinion apart from that.

Also having Hagler included and not Monzon is dodgy, they are so close.

Deeply unimpressed they probably thought about 10 seconds each.

Hearns' list is all made by fighters who fought in the 70s-80s with the exception of Mayweather.

Steward must be the only man on earth to rank Duran behind Hagler.

Emanuel Stewards's top 3 is really good but Hearns's top 3 is pretty bad. Neither Floyd or Pacquiao should be on either list. That's a joke.

And apparently he was the best non heavyweight ever. I guess being 0-2 against Iran Barkley doesn't hurt you all that badly.
