Well Roy Jones and Michael Spinks gotta be up there. I'll leave the rest to the experts here though.

I always thought Antonio Tarver and Hopkins were pretty good, don't know if either would be top 5 though.

Has anyone mentioned Harry Greb yet? Granted, he is generally thought of as a middleweight.

Where are the Bob's? Only one person named Foster and nobody named Fitzimmons. At least Moore was named by a couple!

Do you honestly believe that Bob Fitzsimmons belongs in the top five Light Heavies? Or any division, to be honest. Great fighter he was but he was not great in any division. Maybe Middleweight but probably still not even top ten there.

And Moore should be on everyones list but many of our readers are 1980's onwards so fair enough. Hopefully they'll read about these older names we mention & look them up & learn (like I did 30 odd years ago).
