A massive WW cutting weight hampered his energy levels & stamina towards the end of his title reign. Ike had a great chin, power in both hands & the best jab Ive ever seen.

How would he fare if he was around today?
If he wasnt avoided & got the big fights he'd be the #1 WW

Unofficially Oscar & Forrest. Officially probably Espana or Phillips.

Espana & the demoltion job vs Park are my favourite Ike fights.

Does he rank up there with the "greats" of the divisions that he was in?
In terms of talent & ability he was just as good as Oscar & Tito.
