    Calzaghe, Mayweather, Pacquiao, Hopkins, Wright, Marquez, Calderon, Klitschko. Those are the best fighters in the world. Order them however you want. It's your list. Make up whatever criteria you need to justify it.

    The top 3 is pretty clear to me.

    Mayweather, Pac, Calzaghe. A valid argument could be made for any order.

    Calzaghe is my choice for #3 also. But by a slight margin.

    Meh, I think he belongs there. I'm sentimental though because he put on the greatest fight I've ever seen live.

    I guess the real question is...whose your number 3?

    for the most part 1 and 2 are agreed on.

    Or has a different opinion?

    I think an argument could be made for Cotto to be as high as # 3, and would have no problem seeing him there.
