I agree with that list.

I fear for James Toney's health. Dude is braindamaged beyond measure.

Honorable Mentions. ;
Antonio Tarver (He’s headlining a Showbox card on Showtime… really?)
“Chop Chop” Corley. (From buzzing Mayweather and Cotto, to a tune up on Telemundo)
Emanuel Augustus (So much talent too… but the man has 34 losses and lost last 5)
Ray Austin (He used to be quite decent, I just don’t need to see him on TV anymore)

And of course the man i forgot, Casamayor, who I would put in place of Jermain Taylor on the list lol

Who'd I miss?

You'd have to scan his brain first, but I'm pretty sure he'd the perfect boxer to prove that you take a lot of damage, even if you don't ever get knocked out.

I agree with most of them but I think Toney still has a few good years left in him

The thing that disturbed me about Jones is that he kept saying Paul Williams should retire because he takes too much punishment.

He hasn't been elite for over 10 years. He should have retired by now.
