    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.

    I've always taken the stance that fighters shouldn't be forced to retire, not have I been one to lobby for certain fighters to exit the sport, but damn, if Jones Jr. and Holyfield called it quits tomorrow I'd breathe a sigh of relief.

    I would take Taylor and Mayorga off the list but agree otherwise.

    I think people overreacted a tad to Taylor getting stopped a couple of times.

    Mayorga is a fun opponent for a guy needing a tuneup. He hasn't taken any really bad beatings.

    I just saw that. The talk of Augustus got me thinking what he's been up to lately. Apparently he's been up getting an exciting fight. I haven't seen Forbes since the de la Hoya fight.

    Agreed.Neither Holy or RJJ has anything left to prove and both will never be at the level they once were.It's been sad watching Roy take these beatings over the last couple years.Since he beat Ruiz,it hasn't been the same ever since.

    Shane Mosley - I hate to see him get beat up by guys he'd have torched in his prime - hell he was calling out mayweather and Manny after he destroyed Margo'cheato in '09 and neither would take that fight. I can give credit to Mayweather for at least taking the fight (a year and a half later) when it was still thought mosley had something to offer.

    Please Mosley - Retire.
