By Teddy Atlas. from The Ultimate Book of Boxing Lists.

Check out his List.

1- Panama Al Brown
2- Eder Jofre
3- Ruben Olivares
4- Carlos Zarate
5- Fighting Harada
6- Manuel Ortiz
7- Orlando Canizales
8- Jeff Chandler
9- Raul MAcias
10- Pete Herman.

What do you think ?

Like I said number 1 is Jofre, but I don´t have a problem with people rating Ortiz or Al Brown above him.....these two are the ones that can take his position.

I think Teddy underrated Ortiz and overrated Macias. Nothing against Macias, but Rose deserves his place in the list IMO.
Canizales also is too high IMO.....

Opinions ?

I'll take the bottom two, in any order, over Raton, as well as the long 'reigning' guys like Canizales & Chandler, and over Pintor too.

Rose over all of those, if anyone breaks top ten it's him. Lynch? I know of his prowess but know more of Pete Herman at the mo'.
