Default 10 Best Boxers Of All Time (all Divs)

Now, im sure my list may be different if i sat and thought about it for a while. But ill slap together a quick list that reflects my general thoughts.

Use whatever criteria you like except head to head (that just stupid).

1)Sugar Ray Robinson
2)Joe Gans
3)Muhammad Ali
4)Roberto Duran
5)Henry Armstrong
6)Joe Louis
7)Harry Greb
8)Sugar Ray Leonard (people will dislike this i know, duran, hagler, hearns - enough said)
9)George Foreman (closest thing to invincible boxing has ever seen IMO)
10)Archie Moore

Is there one asking you to compile your 10 greatest BOXERS (ANY DIV) using whatever criteria you choose. To give some insight into your thoughts and how you judge boxers?

Umm...I don't have a set-in-stone ranking, but my top four would look like this;

1. Sam Langford
2. Sugar Ray Robinson
3. Harry Greb
4. Henry Armstrong

These remaining fighters would all get top 10/15 consideration from me;

Willie Pep (possibly 5th), Jimmy Wilde, Ezzard Charles, Benny Leonard, Joe Gans, Joe Louis, Roberto Duran, Tony Canzoneri, Jack Dempsey, George Dixon, Eder Jofre, Mickey Walker, Archie Moore, Bob Fitzsimmons, Gene Tunney, and Muhammad Ali.

I can't see Foreman being on any kind of P4P list Heckler, with all due respect. A heavyweight version of Fullmer who had strength, chin, inside fighting ability and stamina would have killed him. LaMotta, Cerdan, Ketchel, or any of those tough guys with a chin, high workrate, and stamina would have withstood those early bombs and taken him out late in any kind of P4P marchup. Foreman's style worked for him because he was a heavyweight, one of the biggest of his era, but he wouldn't have had nearly as much success if he was a middleweight or smaller.

I may be alone here but I think Foreman is highly overrated these days. I think he's a top ten heavyweight champion but I don't list him in my top five. P4P he would probably not make my top forty. Stamina is, and always will be, one of the most important assets a fighter can possess and Foreman lacked it in his prime big time.

Fair enough Kid. Its not necessarily a p4p List. I think Foreman deserves to be on my list because i sincerely believe that only one boxer in history could beat him (73-74), and that boxer did beat him. I believe him to be the closest thing to invincible boxing has seen and thus i have him in my top 10.
