However, they recently updated to produce a list which mathematically ranks the best boxers ever, which once again caused mass debate among fans.

Floyd Mayweather topped the list with Manny Pacquiao second and Carlos Monzon third.

Meanwhile the two fighters most fans see as the greatest in history – Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Robinson – were down at fourth and fifth.

Muhammad Ali always called himself ‘The Greatest’

Boxrec no doubt just applied their algorithm to the great fighters of the past for a bit of fun, rather than to give people a definitive answer on this age-old debate.

However, one man who has taken it very seriously is the man given the top spot, Floyd Mayweather.
