No offence, but Price dealt with him easily enough in the shamateurs, apart from a dodgy chin from Price, I've not seen anything that changes my view
To be honest the amateurs dont mean alot especially considering the ages, and I certainly would not say you dealt with someone easily in a match if you were dropped to the canvas, especially in the Amatuers.

Price is a clear level below Fury. He hasnt proven too much in the Pros to suggest otherwise. Fair play to him for rematching Thompson after being sparked out, but its Tony Thompson were talking about here, not Wlad or even David Haye. Price has it all to prove imo.

Ricky Burns at number 2 whilst Nathan Cleverly is down at 9? :lol:

Both world champions in their respective divisions and have both fought no one of note so far in their current divisions!

Amir Khan should be higher despite the losses and poor performances. David Haye is far to high right now. Tyson Fury should be above Haye, opposition hasn't been great, but he is winning and active. If thats the case then David Price should be a lot higher aswell considering who he has fought. IMO Ola should be higher aswell.

Overall that is one messed up top 30 and hard to take seriously, people will pick plenty of faults label it a bias ranking and label you a fanboy. Just because you hold a world title, doesnt mean you are a champion, there is such a thing called belt holders. There are to many belt holders in your top 10 who have faced nobodys. Yet there are fighters further down the table that have fought decent opposition. Who may have lost. But at least they are fighting at a higher level and giving a good account of themselves.

Your number 1 is correct, I don't think many people will/can argue with that, but the rest is debatable.

1) Carl Froch
2) Amir Khan
3) Tyson Fury
4) David Haye

Decent list, Murray a bit too high for me, he's been in two prime positions for world titles and has been poor in final rounds, incredibly harsh sounding for a guy who has shown he can compete with good to very good MW's but that is the difference between champions and contenders

What are you on about? You say Brook is just hanging about, that is a lie. As I said he had a fight lined up for Devon Alexander and got injured, hardly hanging about is it? Yet Haye has not fought for a YEAR and his last fight was Chisora !! Talking of which, he lost to Helenius no matter what you or I say. And since when has doing well yet still losing put you up in the rankings. Using your logic Pacquiao should not of dropped in the rankings after his loss to Bradley. But it still happened.
Chisora is better than Saldivia.

Kell Brook holds 2 belts the WBA & IBF Inter-Continental Welterweight title.
My advice is don't start a thread off and expect people to agree with what you say, especialy when you use a guy like Brook who is Ranked #8 in the world at WW also undefeated and drop him out of the top 10 P4P active British fighters.
Who cares about those silly titles? Brook hasn't got a great record and if he doesn't fight for over 8 months then he is going to be falling down the rankings. He doesn't deserve a top 10 place at the moment.

Golovkin possibly!
Yeah, quite possibly.

Not an awful lot I can say I disagree with in terms of who's actually there, BJS is the most high-profile one out, but as you say, you'll have him there if/when he beats O'Sullivan, Paul Butler needs to step it up now really, not sure I'd have Tyson Fury so high, tbh, I think Price still has his number. Why is Magee 'Irish' but Frampton isn't? It isn't just a Catholic/Protestant thing, is it? :p
The Irish thing is about whether they identify as being Irish or British. If they go down the British title root I'll assume that they identify as being British unless I'm informed otherwise.

I agree with most of this list but as many have said I can't be having Clev below Bellew, I am not a Cleverly fan either but you must have been in one of those infamous Clev rages that a few on CHB suffer from when you compiled your list, unfortunately "I hate the cunt" ain't a fool proof argument for placing him below Tony. Good list barring that though.
:lol:

You can't really boost Chisoras standing in the rankings by giving him the win and ignoring the judges....If you do that then you have to knock Bellew down the rankings for his loss against Chilemba first time around
I can do what I want.

Quigg should be higher imo & belongs in the top10, interesting list as always [MENTION=1302]King Horse[/MENTION]
Quigg needs better wins. He looked very good in his last fight, but he was battering a nobody so it wasn't worth much.
