Greatest Boxers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Juan Manuel Marquez

Extremely underrated, could dance with the best and still win, also never ko'd never ducked a fight and when he thought of retiring he went and fought manny one last time and won

December 8th 2012. See what he did to Manny Pacquiao. No one has ever done what Marquez did. Also, to this date (December 2012), NOBODY HAS EVER knocked him out; all his losses (except the Mayweather fight, where he had to go up two weight divisions in a couple or months amd wasn't ready) are questionable decisions. Marquez is definitely the most underrated fighter ever!

42 Ken Norton

Underrated for his knockout losses to 3 of the hardest hitters of all time, 2 of which while past his prime, people forget that Norton, in turn, beat multiple fighters who defeated each of them (save technically for Gerry Cooney, who got Norton in the latter's last fight and doesn't deserve to factor in, for many reasons on top of that). It might still be fair to say he had a stylistic weakness there, but no more than Joe Frazier, who had the same results in his trilogy with Ali but consistently ranks much higher for it.

What also doesn't help is that several of Norton's ranked contender opponents, in what should have been chances to demonstrate his greatness, turned out to be overrated and lucky that they even got to fight him. But contrary to what his more desperate detractors say, his win over Ali was NOT due to Ali having a magic style that made great fighters look bad but a kryptonite-like weakness if you simply held your arms like a crab. Again, to be fair, his style ...more

To me he is one if the greatest stars in boxing eitj his stylistic boxing stance

43 David Tua

A machine in the ring, and he just recently won one of his fights this year! His record says it all! 53 - 2, how good is that! He is a very rare boxer, there are not many good islander boxers but this guy is unbelievable!

He is better than Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali! David Tua is the most amazing and underrated boxer in history, he has only lost three fights and is the greatest heavyweight at the moment!

The greatest athlete in Samoan history! He deserves a spot in the top ten, he has knocked out most of his opponents

How did he even get mentioned seriously

47 Gabriel Flash Elorde

Gabriel is without a doubt the greatest filipino boxer in history! Even better than Pacquiao. He is responsible for 88 wins and one of the most respected figures of all time, RIP Gabriel FLASH Elorde

Elorde is the greatest boxer in the world no doubt! He will beat anyone in the ring and outside and is so much better than Manny PAcquiao! RIP you legend

If Roberto Duran is the best Lightweight in history then Gabriel Flash Elorde is the best in the Featherweight division in History... Heck Donaire had "flash" in his Alias for a reason ;p

The "Flash" is the best featherweight of all time, world champion! He would beat any body, I mean he won 88 fights! RIP Great boxer of the Filipino Islands!

48 Ricky Hatton

Great boxer and supreme guy.

If he had taken better care of himself between fights, who knows...maybe?

Yo-yo dieting takes it out of you. Trust me, I know!

Wouldn't have a bad word said about our Ricky, though. Top lad. The Roger Black of the division. Manny and Floyd are the Michael Johnson.

Not the best boxer. Don't think he really deserves to be on the list, He was a bit slow and not very accurate with his punches. A fighter like marquez would have tortured him.

He almost beast floyd mayweather he just kept leading with his head - gummysniper

He was ripped loom at him in his prime - gummysniper

49 Eder Jofre

Greatest Brazilian boxer of all time

50 Pernell Whitaker

The southpaw that was robbed of victory of Julio Cesear Chavez and Oscar Delahoya.

He destroyed Chavez when Chavez was undefeated. The "draw" was one of the biggest ripoffs of all time. A top 20 fighter who lacked the flair and publicity of many of those ranked above him. Sweetpea was a joy to watch!

51 Bobby Pacquiao

He's just using the name of manny and I think he make a little proof by winning on his own but as a boxer I think he still have made a good accomplishment on his own.

Pacquiao turned professional in 1997. He won the Philippine super featherweight title four times in years 2002 and 2004.

53 Shane Mosley

Crazy skills. Damn those chopping right hands. Great speed and power. Great heart. Never has had his will broken, has only lost to decisions (NO knockout losses). Coolest style in boxing right now. Overall nice guy.
What more could you ask for?

I give Sugar Shane the "Sexiest Eyes" award. Great boxer, easy on the eyes.

Move like a boxer. Hit like a brawler

54 Bob Fitzsimmons
55 Holly Holm Holly Holm Holly Rene Holm-Kirkpatrick is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight division.
56 Benny Leonard
57 Antonio Tarver

He beat Roy Jones twice. He beat Danny Green. He beat Montell Griffin, he beat Eric Harding, and he beat Glen Johnson. Antonio Tarver is a great fighter, and he's underrated.

58 Kid Gavilan
59 Rubin Carter (Hurricane)

Has nobody actually head his story!? What he went through? And it wasn't even him! Listen to the song by Bob Dylan and knock some sense into ya

Social injustices was the case. That happen to Rubin Carter.

He was a beast and deserves a top 20 easy.

Is cool and he is the best!

60 Alexis Arguello

Alexis was a true fighter and it was very awful. The way Aaron using stimulate win that fight. And of course the rematch Alexis was going to loose he got beat physical and mental the first time but it was wrong they never did the urine test on Aaron

A true athlete and gentleman. Great technique and punch power. The first latin to fight for a 4th title in different divisions. A great human being. The best of Nicaragua!

Talk about a true class act, Alexis is all that and more! If it wasn't for the "other bottle" with Pryor he would have ranked much higher.

Nicaraguan legend!
