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

I don't really agree with these two. Tarver doesn't look shot at all, and it's not as though he's putting himself in with guys that can smoke him. Lateef Kayode is a very winnable fight for him, and one that should put him in the mix for one of the numerous WBA titles. He'd beat Guillermo Jones, in my opinion, and I wouldn't put it past to him to outbox Lebedev too.
As for Chop Chop? He's a gatekeeper at this point, and he's not got much left, but he's not on the same level as Jones, Toney, Holyfield etc. Some of his losses in recent years have been dubious, and he's coming off a 'W' in his last fight. I don't see him being competitive at the top of the division but he's still got enough in the tank to be a decent measuring stick for prospects.
Don't get me wrong. I don't want to see any fighter end up a shell of themselves before they even reach their 50s, but I don't think these guys look to be on that road at this point.
