There was an article about Farr in a recent ring magazine and it's stuck in my mind.

He was Joe Louis' first defence and put on such a good show people were questioning whether Louis was good enough!

1. Lewis
2. Fitzsimmons
3. Bruno
4. Bugner
5. Cooper
6. Farr
7. Mason
8. Williams
9. Hide
10. Erskine

Arguably.... Akinwande should be in there, but i've refrained from making the list too dull.
I'd also like to give honourable mentions to Don ****ell, Johnny Prescott, Billy Walker, Dick Richardson, Jack Bodell, Brian & Jack, London, Richard Dunn, John L Gardner, Neville Mead, Gary Pearce and Noel Quarless. All of whom were not only great crowd pleasers, but a darn site better than Audley Harrison.

I've also refrained on rating active fighters, ie Haye who i believe stands a good chance of beating Wladimir Klitschko if they fight in July so i'll try not to elaborate until the subject arises on the appropriate thread.
