That question is really impossible to answer because everyone has different styles and that usually makes a difference in many fights. However I'll put up a list in no particular order on who I believe should go in my top 5:

-Muhammed Ali (How could you not have him in any GOAT list)

-Mike Tyson (At least when he was in his prime before all that BS surrounding him in the late 90's)

-Floyd Mayweather (Not really a fan, but damn is he an amazing talent that backs up his shit talk, may take him off the list depending on who he faces or doesn't face this year)

-Manny Pacquiao (Can't have Floyd without having Pacman on this list. He's destroyed or beat pretty much everyone put in front of him for the past decade besides Marquez)

-Felix Trinidad (As a PR I just had to sneak in one of them, and I have Trinidad ahead of Cotto at this point in their careers. One of my favorite boxers, when Hopkins destroyed him in 2001 I was devastated)


Missing quite a few I know, but I figured I put enough on my list for now would like to hear your thoughts

Re: Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez IV

Nice here's mine

1. Muhammed Ali - Fought and defeated everyone he faced in the golden era of heavyweight boxing, float like a butterfly sting like a bee.

2. Roy Jones Jr - Arguably the most gifted boxer ever, broke all the rules in the ring but could get away with it, skills are simply amazing. Should definitely have retired when he was out of his prime.

3. Sugar Ray Robinson - The man who literally created the term 'pound for pound'. Over 100 KO's.

4. Joe Louis - One of the greatest heavyweights of all time.

Damn how could I forget Roy Jones, he was an amazing talent. I wish he had never gone up to heavyweight though that pretty much ruined his career when he went back down in weight.

James DeGale gives up European crown in pursuit of world title

James DeGale has given up his European super-middleweight title as he turns his focus to winning a world title.

The Beijing 2008 Olympic champion beat Pole Piotr Wilczewski in October 2011 to win the belt, defending it twice.

DeGale claimed a points win over Fulgencio Zuniga recently to win the WBC silver belt and European Boxing Union rules forbid boxers to hold any world title as well as its own crown.

"It's a shame that I have had to choose between the two belts," DeGale said.

After beating Wilczewski to win the belt, DeGale saw off Cristian Sanavia and Hadillah Mohoumadi in his two defences.

"It has been an real honour to be EBU champion. However, I feel my decision to relinquish the European belt is the right decision at this stage in my career," he continued.

"I've won it and defended it twice and I feel the best course of action is to defend my WBC belt on route to a world title.

"The WBC belt will give me a wider choice of world-class opponents."

DeGale's only defeat of his career so far came in May 2011 against domestic rival George Groves when he lost his British title on points.

Kell Brook's postponed world title fight against Devon Alexander has been moved to 23 February.

The Sheffield fighter, 26, was due to take on Alexander for the IBF welterweight title on 19 January but an ankle injury suffered in training meant the fight had to be postponed.

It was originally due to be staged in Los Angeles, but will now take place at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

Brook currently boasts a record of 29 wins from 29 fights.

He knocked out Argentina's Hector Saldivia in the third round of their fight in his home town of Sheffield in October to become the mandatory challenger for the IBF welterweight title.

It will be his first challenge for a world title and he will be up against the 25-year old American Alexander, who has won 24 of his 25 bouts, with 13 knockouts.

Brook tweeted on Tuesday : "Feb 23 I'm gonna show the world just how special I am. I'm gonna bring this world title home for Britain."

Brook's promoter Eddie Hearn told the BBC last month that he is confident Brook can beat Alexander, who won the IBF title with a unanimous decision over American Randall Bailey.

"Devon Alexander is very skilful and quite tricky," said Hearn.

"He's not the biggest puncher in the world but he is technically very gifted and he's only 25.

"Kell needs to go in there and put it on him with a new level of intensity. He needs to go in there and stop him and I think he can do that.

"He wants to win the title and he wants to win it in style. This fight could change his life."

It has been reported that Brook could face fellow Brit Amir Khan next, should Khan move up to welterweight.

Re: Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez IV

Is it sad that I've heard literally nothing about Tim Bradley since he beat Pacquiao?
