Boxing icon Muhammad Ali has brushed aside fierce competition to be voted the best boxer of all time by fans.
The ‘Greatest’ is widely celebrated for his legendary achievements inside the squared circle and incredible long-lasting legacy.
Boxing fans over at TheTopTens have now named Ali top of the pile ahead of the legendary Sugar Ray Robinson.
“Was Most [sic] fearsome boxer in the world he should be no 1,” one fan wrote in the rankings.
While another added: “In his prime the greatest of all time! His fights with Frazier were some of the greatest ever. Even though most did not care to hear him talk, he could talk and back it up!”
A third said: “5 losses, over 50 wins… He was an iconic figure who had a substantial name for himself. Unbeatable.”
And a fourth posted: “He is an inspirational sportsman of all times. A selfless human being. Most admired Boxer [sic] of all times.”
Robinson took home the second spot as fellow boxing legend Mike Tyson finished in third place.
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, who has criticised the idea that Ali should rank above him in the all-time rankings, surprisingly finished in eighth place.
The 43-year-old American superstar, whose last fight came against Conor McGregor, retired in 2017 with an unblemished boxing record of 50-0.
But Mayweather interestingly finished behind fierce rival Manny Pacquiao, who he defeated in a blockbuster super-fight in 2015.
