    Who are the best boxers of all time? I have compiled a list of boxer’s based on their boxing ability, what they achieved in the sport, and how they conducted themselves in and out of the ring. I have put why I rate them so highly also. It is so hard to because every time you think you have it right, you go down the list and pretty much every fighter in their prime – you think “ he could have beaten him” I have decided on this list, and that is that, and it is based on pound for pound credibility’s basically.

    1) Sugar Ray Robinson – Had it all, could defend, could attack, and could do anything.
    2) Muhammad Ali – Has to be right up there, could be below Robinson, or could be below Leonard, but I have him second.
    3) Rocky Marciano, - I think to retire undefeated in an era that was so hard, especially as a 5”10 Heavyweight was amazing, what a KO percentage – 87.75.
    4) Sugar ray Leonard - Some of you will think he should be higher, but I think I have him about right.
    5) Oscar De La Hoya – I think he has to be there, he has fought the best, and is one of the best. Goes in for a battle comes out usually unmarked having won. In his day could have beat all of these above him. I could have had him higher. In fact looking at it, he could be as high as number 3 really.
    6) Roy Jones Jnr – His record speaks for itself, multiple weight champions, still going today.
    7) Floyd Mayweather – People will argue this one to the hilt. But I say this – he has beat De la Hoya, Hatton, Judah etc, he could have fought in any era, a top class fighter.
    8) Jack Dempsey – Probably one of the most popular fighters of all, again KO’s were amazing.
    9) Joe Frazier – beat Ali, says it all really, lost to only Foreman & Ali, and that speaks for itself.
    10) Joe Louis – Held the heavy weight title for 11 years, before retiring after being KO by Rocky Marciano, which happened a lot to everyone else so.
    11) Bernard Hopkins or Joe Calzaghe if can beat him, Joe calzaghe ranked alongside him. Hopkins because of his stature within the fighting world, and his ability to move up the weights and win world titles. But I think that if Calzaghe beats him then he can be here – has been champion for over 10 years. His actual ability is up there with Ali, his hand speed, tactical boxing brain and ability to take a punch. I believe he could have fought in any era, pitty he could not have fought with Leonard.
    12) Evander Holyfield – A brilliant boxer, who had a brilliant career, wins over the likes of Tyson, Holmes & Foreman cement his position here amongst the greats.
    13) Mike Tyson – To win the world heavy weight crown at 20 is one hell of an achievement, but outside influences destroyed what could have been the best of all time.
    14) Jake La Motta – Some amongst us probably think he should not be here and those below that are mentioned should be, but I put him here for pure reputation inside and outside the boxing ring.
    15) Jack Johnson – The first black heavyweight, in an era that was hard, very hard and known fro brutality inside the ring as well as outside on the streets. A top class boxer, with a good heart.


    Honorable mentions for their ability and what they bought to the sport.

    Tommy Hearn’s, Marvin Haggler, Jimmy Wilde, Ricky Hatton (had to I’m British), George Foreman. Lennox Lewis, Henry Armstrong, Larry Holmes, Marco Antonio Barrera, Manny Pacquiao, Chris Eubank, Nigel Benn, Steve Collins, Barry McGuigan, Henry Cooper.
    Where's Kid Chocolate, Kid Gavilan, Al Brown, Kid Azteca, Sam Langford, Mantequilla Napoles, Chango Carmona.

    Canelo vs Mayweather

    Canelo wins by KO. No matter what! He's not the same Canelo Mayweather danced around on the first time. He can put a definite stop to the dancing game this time around*.

    Clown, you literally don't know what the word "literally" means.

They actually appreciate to the T when you straight up say you're not prioritizing competition. It's clowns like you who say you wanna be champ, but then dog it in training and gossip like *****es on the cheer squad that they hate. So where's your record? Where's the footage. Can I call one of your trainers? That way it can be done off line.

    In the meantime, just answer my questions, b'itch.

I'm not asking you to spill your personal information on the web. I now first hand hope disastrous that can be. But since you seem to be looking for an angle to keep yourself alive against this asswhooping i'm giving you, by all means, let's have it. Even better let's see the footage. Let's see you circling fighters with your hands dropped unloading freely on fighters with proper high guard and defensive insight. I'm sure you look just like Ray. I'm sure that unhinged style totally works on modern trained fighters. Probably your opponents see you replicating Ray's style and they feel compelled to drop their hands, square up their stance and charge in, chin first, just like 90% of Ray's opponents did - completely involuntary... all a consequence of that Ray Robinson secret technique. Probably you're here, and not a legend in the making heading up PPV cards because no one will fight you. That 1940s Boxing style that expired almost as soon as it reached the shelf is just too sophisticated for modern fighters. They're too scared to fight you.



    All joking aside, I really regret that none of your trainers taught you to slip, block or roll with punches. Maybe you'd still have fully functioning gray matter if they had.
    Dude, you have to throw in the towel. Have you even been in a boxing gym before?
