As of current performances, losses and so on, just in 6 months the top 10, especially people's (and ranking systems used by boxrec, Ring, etc...) have changed quite a bit except for the top 5 fighters. Curious now how people rank the top 20. One favor to ask, as I feel the Klitchsko brothers are well deserving, but the Heavyweight division has been so poor for so long now, even though they deserve to be ranked, please disregard Heavyweights, as I have totally only watched maybe a dozen heavyweight matches over a year and it's sad. On another note, I mentioned in the past I felt Bradley would break into the top 10 in Ring, Boxrec, etc... top 10, and he has (althought I think he doesn't belong there). He needs to fight atleast 1 great fighter before breaking into the top 10!
Also, maybe over 90% of rankings had Khan, they dropped him down into the mid teens. I'm sure Mayweather and Pacquiao will lead many lists, with Martinez, Ward, Dawson, and even though I get slack for it I've rated Broner high for some time even though he has yet to fight a great fighter (Ponce people consider very good, but people question that fight as well).
Listing the top 5 won't have much change, but I'm curious where people put Alvarez (and my next thread will be that fight). People have posted some good info lately on middle class fighters, and that's where you make the cash and get bigtime underdogs that should be favorites.
Now it's time... post your top 10 or 20... I won't start a list as I've done previously many times (I do like doing lbs-for-lbs all time, or divisional all-time, because all the info on their career is there and comparing and ranking them everyone has their own weighted system - the only thing I don't rank is fighters who had great athletic ability but had few fights versus top opposition to show it).
BTW- I find it funny how Hopkins is ranked above Dawson in some sites... strange.

I had Broner on my soon to be top 10, I was ridiculed. Anyone think he deserves to be listed maybe top 20? Cloud has performed terrible, as with Alexander until last night, but Maidana isn't a boxer with skills, he's a puncher. Khan dropped for everyone. To me I still leave out Bradley, although I stated many would ridicule me for that as well. It's OK. Just curious where people rank others. The Klitchsko brothers have dominated, but I leave out the heavyweights in my ranks for now as the division sucks!
