DWYER'S TEN COUNT BOXING'S TEN BEST FIGHTERS:
UPDATED 6-7-00

IN OUR OPINION, THE FOLLOWING FIGHTERS LISTED IN ORDER, ARE THE TEN BEST FIGHTERS IN BOXING. WE DON'T BELIEVE IN HYPE, JUST TALENT AND RESULTS.

1. ROY JONES, JR. -- HE IS WASTING HIS TALENT. HE REFUSES TO FIGHT ANYONE WITH TWO LEGS AND A PUNCH. BUT TALENT-WISE, HE IS UNMATCHED. HIS HAND SPEED AND FLUIDITY ARE THE BEST IN BOXING. HE THROWS THE BEST LEAD LEFT HOOK IN BOXING. AND HIS UPPERCUT TURNS OUT THE LIGHTS.

2. "FEROCIOUS" FERNANDO VARGAS -- A BOXING PICASSO. ON THE VERGE OF UNIFYING THE TITLE. CRITICS SAY HE IS TOO YOUNG. FORGET ABOUT IT. HE IS YOUNG, TALENTED, AND ARGUABLY BOXING'S BEST.

3. FELIX "TITO" TRINIDAD -- HAS THE ENTIRE OFFENSIVE ARSENAL. CAN DROP A MAN WITH A HEAD SHOT OR BODY ATTACK. BUT HIS CHIN IS SUSPECT. HIT THE CANVAS AGAINST CAMPAS, CARR, AND REID. ALTHOUGH WE PREDICTED HE WOULD BEAT DE LA HOYA (WHICH HE DID), IT'S DOUBTFUL HE COULD DO IT IN A REMATCH.

4. "THE LATIN DESTROYA" OSCAR DE LA HOYA -- NOBODY HAS A BETTER BODY PUNCH. BROKE DOWN DARRELL COLEY'S RIB CAGE. DID THE SAME TO OBA CARR BEFORE ENDING THE FIGHT BY GOING UPSTAIRS. UNDERRATED, EVEN WITH THE HYPE.

4. (TIE) "SUGAR" SHANE MOSLEY -- DOMINANT, SIMPLY DOMINANT. HIS SHORT ARMS ALLOW HIM TO HAVE HAND SPEED THAT IS REMARKABLE FOR HIS PUNCHING POWER. HAS NEVER LOST.

6. ERIC "EL TERRIBLE" MORALES -- SIMPLY UNBELIEVABLE. ON THE VERGE OF BECOMING A HOUSEHOLD NAME BUT RIGHT NOW IS ONE OF BOXING'S BIGGEST SECRETS. TOO WILLING TO SLUG IT OUT WITH HIS DIVISION'S HEAVIEST HITTERS THEREBY DILUTING HIS BOXING STRENGTHS. WAS SEVERELY TESTED BY MARCO ANTONIO BARRERA. COULD GET DROPPED BY HAMED IF HE CONTINUES TO GET DISTRACTED IN THE RING. NEEDS TO FOCUS ON HIS SUPERIOR SKILLS AND SHOULD LEAVE THE SLUGGING TO OTHERS.

7. "PRINCE" NASEEM HAMED -- POUND FOR POUND, NOBODY HITS HARDER. BUT HIS CORNER IS IN DISARRAY. WORSE YET, HE HAS BEEN HAVING HAND PROBLEMS RECENTLY. WE DON'T THINK HE CAN BEAT A FOCUSED ERIC MORALES. BUT HE IS COCKY, YOUNG, CONFIDENT, AND HITS LIKE EARNIE SHAVERS.

8. IKE "BAZOOKA" QUARTEY -- GOT SPANKED BY FERNANDO VARGAS. LOOKED SMALL AS A SUPERWELTER. HIS CHIN RAISES QUESTIONS. BUT DON'T TRY TO BOX THIS MAN. YOU'LL LOSE.

9. "PRETTY BOY" FLOYD MAYWEATHER -- TOOK GENARO HERNANDEZ'S TITLE AND HAS NOT LOOKED BACK. DISMANTLED ANGEL MANFREDY IN TWO ROUNDS. LAST SEEN DISMANTLING GOYO VARGAS. POWER PUNCHER/BOXER WITH HAND SPEED. DON'T BET AGAINST HIM.

10. BERNARD HOPKINS -- FORGET ALL OF THE GUYS CLAIMING TO BE MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION. THIS GUY IS THE BEST MIDDLEWEIGHT ON THE PLANET. PERIOD. THE TALENT IS OBVIOUS. HASN'T LOST IN YEARS.

HONORABLE MENTION -- LENNOX LEWIS [AS WE PREDICTED, DESTROYED MICHAEL GRANT], CHRIS BYRD [A BETTER BOXER THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION], DAVID TUA [REMINISCENT OF A YOUNG TYSON], MIKE TYSON [CLOSER TO THE TITLE THAN YOU MIGHT THINK], JOHNNY TAPIA [SKILLS, SKILLS, AND MORE SKILLS], RICARDO LOPEZ [GREAT CHAMPION, BUT HE IS SLIPPING]
