In Boxing, it's difficult to answer the question, "Who is currently the greatest Boxer on Earth?" Or, that ever lived, etc. Anyone who's kept up with boxing knows that the belts don't really mean that much. Another way to look at it is "Who is the best boxer, pound for pound?" This takes into consideration the size of the boxer. Sure someone like Lennox Lewis could probably cream Shane Mosley into the ground, but they're more than 50 lbs apart. If Mosley was the same size as Lewis, what then? Well, most people think it would be Mosley then. In general, this is one of the best ways to get a list of really good boxers that are worth watching (because you're gonna' have to pay to see them).

This is my current top 20 Pound for Pound:

  1. Roy Jones, Jr.
  2. Bernard Hopkins
  3. Vernon Forrest
  4. Marco Antonio Barrera
  5. Oscar De La Hoya
  6. Kostya Tzyu
  7. Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
  8. Eric Morales
  9. Tim Austin
  10. Acelino Freitas
  11. "Sugar" Shane Mosley
  12. Fernando Vargas
  13. Lennox Lewis
  14. Jose Luis Castillo
  15. Wladimir Klitschko
  16. Zab Judah
  17. Eric Morel
  18. Ronald "Winky" Wright
  19. Joel Casamayor
  20. Antonio Tarver
