This project was started by FightFanAL in July 2009. In May of this year, I volunteered to finish the work he started. I finally did tonight. I would have preferred if no active fighters had been included. I didn't include any on my list mainly because, in my opinion, you need time to reflect on a fighter's career. Where he and his opponents fit in historically is usually best assessed after the fighter has been retired for a minimum of five years. Be that as it may, there were no stipulations to exclude active fighters.

Great job KSTAT. Great listing, of course we could spend some great evenings discussing the placement of some of these fighters, sipping good bourbon and partaking of a good cigar....but just seeing a list like this definitely stirs up the old passion. Hope all is well.

Great to hear from you. Hope all is well with you. Things have been going particularly well at my end. My wife and I are both retired and we wre able to check a few things off our bucket lists this year- Chicago for three days in April; Portugal, Italy, and France for two weeks in July and early August.

It's amazing how time flies by. Our grandkids (our daughter's children) are 9 and 6.
