Tyson Fury, but no Prince Naseem Hamed? And LOL at clinton woods. Eubank Sr, Bruno, Benn and Lewis deserve higher spots than Fury.

I'd put Robin Reid over Burns & Witter.
Wins over Vasquez, Wharton, Magee and very strong case for beating both Joe Calzaghe and Sven Ottke.

The correct answer is Joe Calzaghe. Criminally underrated and never given the full acclaim he deserves.

I can see that tbg. Reid was a good fighter but I just felt Burns and Witter did more in their respective divisions and won more big fights than they lost.

I'd have Fury above guys like Woods and Witter. The guy is THE Heavyweight champion, something few British boxers in history have achieved, and did it against a great fighter.
