    I threw his name on the list at the end.
    I hesitated and probably shouldn't have added him yet.

    So no one wants to put RJJ in the top 10?

    No just saw he's in OP. I like that list but id put Lennox Lewis and Oscar in there, definitely ahead of Toney.

    The reason Duran isn't on my top 10 is because its from 80's to present.
    He was about 16-7 in the 80s, and around 17-7 after that.
    Now if the 70s were included he's probably top 5.

    Leonard Cuevas and Barkley seems a solid 80s resume.

    Is it a best pound for pound or greatest pound for pound list?

    Looking at the list I assume it's the former.

    If 70's were included he wouldn't "probably" be top 5.

    Floyd IS on the top ten list in the OP
    and it clearly states it's not in order.

    In transit.
    Barrera in and Calzaghe out IMO. Calzaghe's career is overhyped, Barrera's under.
