However, Holmes is clearly above Wlad. He has more defenses, he was undefeated for more time and didn't have embarrasing loses early in his career. Yes, Holmes ranks higher.

1. Ali
2. Louis
3. Holmes
4. Lewis
5. Marciano
6. Foreman
7. Frazier
8. W. Klitschko
9. Liston
10. Tyson

Wlad will soon be 37, btw.
I am a well known Klitschko fan & I agree with you, Holmes still ranks higher. Wladimir would need a few more defenses & he'd have to unify the last belt, the WBC his brother now holds, to possibly pass Holmes. Even then it would depend on who he beats & how.
