I think you should stick this thread. It's really handy and the kind of information that's cool to have on offer. I'm still looking for past lists as well.

I will. It's a good discussion piece and great for a reference in arguments. They're damn hard to find, so I wanted to have them close by.

I didn't know they were from the best fighter polls from KO. They look a lot like P4P lists and my source (boxrec I think) didn't really explain where it came from.

Anyway... Tanks for the find Randy, good looking out.

Yeah, it was an annual thing with KO Mag back in those and these used to come out in their end of the year issues. Used to ask a selection of ten "experts" (writers, fighters, announcres, etc.) who they thought were the ten best fighters, and then compile the the final tally by giving 15 pts for a first place position, 12 for second, 9 for third, and so on down the line.

For a few years it was about the only pound-for-pound ranking of sorts that could be found in the sport, save for for the occasional "special" article detailing such in the magazines. It wasn't until around 1984, maybe '85 when KO Mag began publishing a monthly top twelve ranking of the best fighters in the sport and called it the 'Dirty Dozen'.

Anyways, cheers Doc.
