i was basing my rankings mostly on a top 10 boxers by weight website (which i didnt link), and on my knowledge of the history and current matches.
Caballero is more a super-bantum, only reason he is stated as super-feather was because he missed weight his last fight. He is a feather, so you have him in the wrong division.
Glen Johnson is now a super-middle, let alone a contender at cruiser.
Kelly Pavlik who was schooled by BHOP and Martinez, ahead of Lucian Bute?
Adamek as #7 heavyweight, yet #9 P4P, an impossibility unless the other 6 heaves are in the top 8 P4P.
Personally, I think boxrec is about as good as it gets for close to legitimate top 10 rankings per division and P4P.
thanks for your support Fine Wine!
interesting about Caballero. i know he left the super bantamweight division to pursuit Gamboa in featherweight, and now had his first fight (and loss to Litszau) at super-featherweight, but maybe i should put him down to featherweight.
im not sure why i put Johnson @ cruiser, hes really a light heavyweight who now dropped to super-middleweight, so i should remove him...
Lucian Bute has not accomplished enough in boxing to be ahead of a guy like Pavlik who lost to 2 of the greatest.
Adamek is a small heavyweight like David Haye, and climbing to the top 10 with giants like Valuev and Samuel Peter gotta account for some skill... the p4p list is not ranked even if it appears to be, its actually in no particular order just the way it was put.
