Default Re: Greatest Achievement By a Heavyweight

Ali followed by Louis. I also respect a lot what Holmes did, his unbeaten streak is the longest of any heavyweight.

Foreman and Vitali Klitschko had great achievements too. Foreman had a shit comeback career and was slow as hell, but had a lot of perseverance and ended up regaining the titie in 1994. Klitschko returned to fight after 4 years of inactivity and still dominated and beat the shit out of most of his opponents.

Who cares if Tyson beat Berbick at 20 or 21. His career ended 3 years later.

So:

1. Ali winning the title in Zaire.
2. Louis reign and 25 title defenses.
3. Holmes undefeated between 1973 and 1985.
4. Vitali Klitschko / George Foreman comebacks.
