    That was a while ago

    Sweet. I really don't know if the original lists are still up. I think they were purged quite some time ago.

    The lists were only top 20 and If I am not mistaken, a handful of entries were only top 10 so there was some unfortunate but unavoidable "weighting" invloved with this compilation.

    Looking back, the names that you listed Do stand out as being left out, especially this being an aggregate list.

    Ha!

    That's what I get for only looking at MY posts!

    I didn't even see that T posted those old lists!

    Mine has some revisions to it from when that was originally posted (It is ever changing as the education process never ends.).

    Langford and Greb have moved up. Joe Louis and Benny Leonard have moved down slightly. And Emile Griffith is now in my top 20 bumping out Pryor and just edging out Ike WIlliams who moved up as well.

    Again, This is MY list and Mine alone. I don't claim that it is superior to anyone else's or that it is the CORRECT list.

    I have never state that I am an "expert". But I do consider myself to be a well schooled fan who has closely followed the sport for over 30 years.

    I love lists. But they aren't anything to get one's panties in a bunch over.

    Sanchez top 20? I must have been on drugs. SRL, Sanchez and others would not be where they are.

    Sorry Sharks

    THis is on your permanent record.

    Sex offenses.

    Income Tax evasion.

    Failure to pay Child Support.

    Pound for Pound lists, any and all incarnations.

    They shall haunt, scar and ultimately, define what kind of person you REALLY are.

    Hawk, do you have an up-to-date list you can post? I'd be interested to give it a gander.

    By the way, does anyone have a top 200 list? There's a challenge.

    Sweet

    I'm not that bullet proof to trot my list out here.

    Personally, I think my criticisms of Gene Tunney, beleifs that Zale would beat Freddie Steele, opinions on Liston vs. Ali in Lewiston and my heresy about Holmes beating Marciano is enough to keep me in a defensive position on this site.

    Dragging out my list of who I think makes up the 100 All Time Pound for pound fighters is IMO an unecessary fodder for the masses.

    Fair enough. All the same, you defend your views well enough to counter any serious criticisms from what I've seen.

    Agreed 100%. I just see lists as something to do in my down time. I don't take them any more seriously than anyone else's. All in fun.
