List Rules Seeking accuracy beyond media geared bias built up over the years, or over salesman bias...etc.

This list is comprised of some top heavyweight boxing records in recent media History. It does factor in how many bouts were fought, estimated as compared to losses, and whom the losses were too + the older ages at which bouts were lost, and it also factors in whether a boxer with a better record than someone they may have lost to one time; was ever granted a rematch, or not; if not, and a boxer has a better record...then the boxer with the better record gets the higher rating nod, and boxer's who did grant rematches, and either lost or won again are also factored in, and usually will surpass the boxer on this list with the better number record, for they then have have the better winning record. I got the boxing record statistics from "boxrec.com".
