Re: Wladimir Klitschko now holds the record for the longest reign in heavyweight boxi
I think all heavyweights from 1980 and onwards get underrated in my opinion. The only reason people like jerry quarry, ken norton, ron lyle, earnie shavers, etc get recognition is because they fought muhammad ali and were a part of his era. If these guys fought nowadays got thier asses whooped by the klitchkos, none of them would be viewed as credible wins. Norton would get whipped out by a david tua. I see tim witherspoon easily beating ron lyle and shavers, he prolly beats quarry too. But these modern heavyweights wont get credit because they didnt face Ali.
