With so many great fighters in the last 100 years it is not so easy to accurately pick the top ten in order. Most important when comparing boxers from different generations is their style of fighting, certain styles don’t work well together and a supposed superior fighter will lose 9 times out of ten because of their particular style. Its the reason Roberto Duran said No Mas to a Sugar Ray, and a big reason it took Marquez 4 times to land a big shot and beat Manny Pacquiao.
