If he's gonna put Taylor in his "next 10" then for my money he should have Kessler in there as well. Both lost to a guy in the top 10, but Kessler did a lot better than Taylor did. Obviously everyone's pissed off at him not fighting miranda (which imo he didn't have to do just cos everyone wanted to see it, tho he would've destroyed miranda) but it doesn't make him any less of a fighter.

I agree with his list except bhop and marquez are 9 and 10. Cotto should be 4. The rest look fine I guess. 1 is all that matters to me.

Roy hasn't won a meaningful fight since the first Tarver match, no way he should be top 30 IMO.

Hopkins deserves his spot, i fully expect to see an execution before he hangs them up.

no roy jones??? not even in the top 20? but Bhop is 6th???
Yeah, I would have to agree with tommy, although he was still top 10 p4p when he lost to tarver. He's rated 7th in the lhw division I believe. But he's not p4p anymore. He has a chance at upsetting calzaghe but his p4p days are over sadly. One of the best p4p champs ever though.

Hopkins is not top 10 p4p anymore even though it was close, he looked way too old all through that fight and he actualy looked ready to go just on constant pressure. Even though Guzman doesn't have alot of power at 130 he should be at least in the top 12 replacing De La Hoya. I would pick him over Pacquiao, JMM, John and Vasquez.

I still consider roy a better p4p fighter then hopkins. Hopkins didnt look very good last week. Not to mention he was clearly out of shape from all the clitching and trying to buy time "faking" the low blow in the 10th i beleive. I dont think JC looks very good either to be honest...those slaps dont impress me, i dont care if he slaps 6 times a second.

Roy loosk pretty good in the tito fight. He was clearly toying with him near the end. Sure tito faught at a weight he prolyl shouldnt have but still choose to take the fight. There was basically no clitching at all and roy looked good the whole way trough. Good speed and power as well. I really think Roy can put JC in his place if they ever meet.

Overall, I consider RJ much higher than hopkins as a p4p fighter. Neither imo are p4p fighters anymore, although rj still has p4p the fastest hands in the business.

I find it intriguing that Hopkins is on this list and Jones is not... What, the, :thumbsdown:

Lets do some thinking:
Trinidad beat (cough) De la Hoya (who is on the list) and Jones BEAT on trinidad.
Winky beat trinidad in a way less beautiful manner yet he's on the list...
Jones is the most dominating athlete ever.
Jones BEAT on Hopkins...

Every opponent on the P4P list he has faced he has beaten.

C'mon... Let's stop embedding ourselves in history and setting our ideas in stone people!

(Insert RJJ fans that defend him not being on the list to appear neutral)

Hopkins is better than Jones right now. That is clear, hence the reasoning behind the rankings.

The rankins are judged on results on who you've beat and fought lately. Not what you were 5 years ago.

Considering Hopkins was 4 and he lost to the guy at 5 he'll still get his top 10 spot. If you lose to another fighter in the top 10 you dont drop out of it.

Hatton is still in the top 10 P4P, he is ranked 8 right now by the ring.
