    Ali was a terrible puncher. His hitting technique was much worse than Liston, who does belong where they put him. While Ali was quick, but he did not sit down on his punches enough, did not point his weight behind them.

    Liston was quick, extremely powerful, and threw in combinations during his prime. Don't judge Liston by his fight with Ali; his best days were behind him at that point. In his prime he was a monster and many thought he would be the next Joe Louis. He didn't quite live up to the Brown Bomber, but that was due to his heart and not his ability or skill.

    My idol Salvador Sanchez shouldn't be there....he's not a puncher at all. He breaks down opponents.

    Having Sonny Liston and Michael Spinks so high on the list compared with the other boxers is a bit of a joke

    Henry Armstrong was an accumulation puncher.
    Even at Featherweight? I know he wasn't as strong p4p at lightweight and welterweight.

    I always thought 154 was a much more natural weight for Hearns.

    I'd like to hear some thoughts and opinions.

    I have a problem with Hagler being 17 spots behind Hearns.

    Henry Armstrong only 57?
