I have watched boxing for a lot of years and I have and heard the oppinions of many so-called experts. To me no one holds a candle to Bert Randolph Sugar. I have had the pleasure of knowing Bert personally for almost 40 years and there is no greater authority on boxing anywhere on the planet. Bert's knowledge is so vast that many of the other so-called experts have defered to him when comes to questions on boxing history. He has been a frequent guest host on many of ESPN's boxing-related programs as well as some the Sports Century episodes on ESPN Classic. Bert has written many books on the subject, including the recently-published Boxing's Greatest Fighters, an accurate assessment of the 100 greatest pound for pound fighters in boxing history and the soon-to-be released Boxing Encyclopedia. In 2005, Bert was rewarded with long-overdue election to the International Boxing Hall-of-Fame.

He's old you have to expect that. He is used to the old days when fighters didn't wait 6 months or more between fights. I understand his reasoning completely but do not totally agree with it.

I think his lists are screwed up. Like his top 10 heavweight list. Having freaking Frazier and Tunney above Holmes. And having Foreman above him too. What is that guy thinking?
