Best boxers of all time

My opinion

1. Floyd Mayweather Jr
2. Joe Louis
3. Ray Robinson
4. Muhammad Ali
5. Terence Crawford
6. Julio Cesar Chavez
7. Vasyl Lomachencko
8. Marvin Hagler
9. Ray Leonard
10. Andre Ward
11. Rocky Marciano
12. Roy Jones Jr
13. Roberto Duran
14. George Foreman
15. Bernard Hopkins

Could be way off, just a start, those are definitely my top 4, but the rest I'm not sure about.

Re: Best boxers of all time

I'll go top 15 for me, and only guys I got to see in their prime, and when I remember(so from about 1991 to present), and in no particular order initially, at least until I think about it more.

1. Floyd Jr (top 5 all-time for me)
2. BHop (also in my top 5)
3. Roy Jones Jr ( his peak may have been the best I've ever seen)
4. GGG (still best fighter in the world to me until he loses)
5. Loma (likely most skilled of this generation, though I think he still has a few things to prove to shake some of the doubters off)
6. James Toney ( an absolute craftsman in the ring, if he only had a better work ethic)
7. Lennox Lewis ( best of the second best generation of heavyweights, the 90's)
8. George Foreman (old man edition George was a joy to watch, and still could crack with the youngins)
9. Tyson Fury ( the kid can flat out box, and in his prime, he would have been scary for anyone with his technique and ring craft).
10. Andre Ward (can't deny his credentials)
11. Winky Wright( always one of my favorites, and like Calzaghe, you'd expect him to get mowed down by these fighters, that he go in and pick apart)
12. Miguel Cotto ( too good, too skilled, and a killer left hook, in addition to being, at least seemingly, a very good man as well).
13. Wilder (just too damn fun to watch, and that power is otherworldly; makes his iffy ring craft at times moot very quickly)
14. Pac Man (won titles in so many divisions, and was the most feared man in boxing, not named Mike Tyson, during his prime)
15. Kostya Tszyu (the first "little guy" I became a fan of, and one of the best Super Lightweights ever in his prime.)
