    I posted a while back an idea to create a martial talk boxing tournament, where people nominate their favorite boxers, and then people vote tournament-wise on who is the greatest. (Original thread is here: Martial Talk Boxing Tournament ).

    A link to the bracket is at the bottom of this, and every couple of days I will post a poll for the next match up, which you can click and vote on. It's not based on weight classes, so obviously some people wouldn't be able to beat another due to that (Roberto Duran would probably have difficulty in a match against Nikolai Valuev for instance), so don't go solely based on that. Vote for who you think is the greatest, the best boxer, or just your favorite if you want, and please feel free to comment on here! I'm really excited that people are interested, since I feel like it could generate a lot of interesting discussions.

    Nobody in the initial thread nominated him lol. Just updated it to include him, as he is definitely a contender.

    If anyone else has someone they want included let me know and I will add them.

    Oh, I'm a little bummed. I picked a bunch of giant slayers, but if it's not random, I think my guys are in trouble! :)

    Unfortunately you have excels randomization to thank for that. The numbers for the seeds mean nothing...otherwise tyson would be a lot lower and ali would be a lot higher.

    Are we to just vote? Or can we offer opinion and analysis of the various matches as they are presented?
    I'm good either way.

    The votes the main thing, but discussion and analysis always makes these things more interesting :)

    Hmm, I;m guessing with the amount of posts this weekend, this fell off the main page. Either that, or this tournament is ending very early.

    Toughest thing is when in their respective careers are they fighting. So I'm just imagining them at their peak, their best.

    That's what I'm doing as well. Some did not age well, so it's unfair to me to compare at those points.

    Yes, he should.

    My favorite boxing pic. Shows the loneliness of a fighter.
