World Top 10 Greatest or Best Boxers of all TimeWhile there’s no real surprise to see 50-0 Floyd Mayweather top the list, there’s no space for the legendary Mike Tyson. Mayweather, who didn’t lose a fight during his 21-year career, beats one of his former opponents Manny Pacquiao who came third. The undefeated Joe Louis takes the second place Muhammad Ali – who many fans consider the greatest sportsman ever – has to settle for fifth as Argentine Carlos Monzon makes the top four. Elsewhere in the top 10, Sugar Ray Robinson – who won a ridiculous 174 fights – is sixth ahead of Bernard Hopkins. Archie Moore, Oscar De La Hoya – another Mayweather opponent – and Julio Cesar Chaves complete the list. It means that the likes of Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Rocky Marciano, and Roberto Duran all miss out. 10. Julio Cesar Chavez – 107-6-2
9. Oscar De La Hoya – 39-6-0
8. Archie Moore – 186-23-10
7. Bernard Hopkins – 55-8-2
6. Sugar Ray Robinson – 174-19-6
5. Muhammad Ali – 56-5-0
4. Carlos Monzon – 87-3-9
3. Manny Pacquiao – 62-7-2
2. Joe Louis – 66-3-0But not to include Tyson in the top 10 is nothing short of scandalous.
1. Floyd Mayweather – 50-0-0‘Money’ held numerous world titles in five weight classes and is regarded as the best defensive boxer ever. He finished with a perfect 50-0 record and was the highest-earning athlete in the world from 2012-2015 – hence his nickname. By virtue that he is the only boxing great to have won every single fight during his career, we’re agreeing with The African Media on this one. But not to include Tyson in the top 10 is nothing short of scandalous.
