World Top 10 Greatest or Best Boxers of all Time
While 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 – 66-3-0
But not to include Tyson in the top 10 is nothing short of scandalous.
