    Its a pretty damn list. I have no major gripes other than to maybe move up or down some in the list.

    No andre ward.

    Figures its all top rank and HBO guys though aside from Floyd coming from Big Dan. Marquez probably really doesn't belong at #3 anymore, especially ranked over Tim Bradley.

    Seriously, Andre Ward is pretty much retired now huh? Has he even done commentary lately? What a waste. We should be arguing whether he deserves the #1 spot, not trying to remember who he fought last.

    Haven't given it a lot of thought. It just looks like theres a few names who are questionable. Like I said, Marquez probably shouldn't be up there at #3. Golovkin as the #6 P4P fighter in the world is questionable too. Wlad? I mean, yeah, he's dominant I guess but he's fighting in what I personally believe is the worst era of HWs in history.

    I'd put Froch over Golovkin and Kovalev without question too. No way have either of those guys accomplished a fraction of what Froch has.

    Well, Pac is #2 and he held his own. That Mexican guy is Argentinian, and it was a bit of a robbery.

    Ward is arguably top 3.

    Ward didn't fight in 2014.

    Ward is not even a pro boxer anymore.

    I am a bit surprised they still have Marquez in the top five, I guess that is more of a legacy rating (which isn't really what this is about). I think Wlad makes sense at 8, I thought he was way overrated at #2 or #3 according to the Ring.

    I think the issue with Showtime fighters is that they did not really put on any good fights this year. If Garcia had a big win I could see him in the top 10 over Kovalev, Who is a beast but his best fight this year was beating up a 50-year-old.

    Yeah, I'm not big on Marquez at 3 either. Swap him with Gonzalez.

    I think Ward is top 3 in quality, but he has barely fought. Still, if activity is an extremely important category, I don't think Marquez should be as high as #3. I'm shocked they rated Rigo as high as they did considering it's Fat Dan involved. Gonzalez should be a touch higher. Wlad should be higher, as well. Over all, not terrible, though. Inoue might deserve real consideration considering he was already #2 at worst at Junior Flyweight and then skipped a division and stopped the universal #1 at Super Flyweight. Probably more impressive than what the likes of Kovalev, Froch, and Golovkin have done.

    I'm a big Inoue fan, but I don't think it's more impressive than Froch. Kovalev and Golovkin though, you could definitely argue.

    Dan is only one of the ten voters.

    Marquez is a bit iffy at 3 but he's legit. He's 2-1 in his last 3 fights. A lot of ppl thought he was over the hill and that alvarado would beat him. Juan dominated him all 12 rounds. Sure Mike isn't elite but he's pretty solid and he's never been completely out classed like he was against Juan.

    I like Inoue a lot but he isn't top 10 p4p yet. Him vs Roman would be sick shit though. Little guys don't draw too much but if your exciting you can make it on network tv like Donaire did on HBO.
