Tyson for sure should make the cut
Have to agree with most of this. williams had power but its who you prove it against at tge top level.

For mine:

Foreman
Tyson
Louis
Shavers
Satterfield (reluctantly)
Wlad
Baer
Lewis
Liston
Marciano (reluctantly)

Notes: fitz and langford are ranked high tham many here p4p but i dont feel their power would translate across eras. I omitted Dempsey because I don't feel his power was solely responsible for his success; his tenacity and aggression combined with power was critical
