The list of the best boxers of all time in the world is published by the magazine The Pugilist, two years ago. They released the top 50 names that were ranked to the end.
Sugar Ray Robinson was placed at number one. He is considered superior to Muhammad Ali who is in second position.
Then there is the name of the boxer from the Philippines, Manny Pacquiao at number 11. There is also a debate regarding this, because he is taller than his rival, Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Mayweather Jr placed by The Pugilist at number 39. Above him are still names like Oscar de la Hoya (36) and Joe Frazier (31).
No less attention-grabbing is the ranking given to Mike Tyson. Boxer nicknamed The Concrete Neck is at number 49, or second from bottom.
