Anyway, for the really old era I'd have
1. Joe Louis
2. Marciano
3. Jack Dempsey
4. Gene Tuney
5. Archie Moore
6. Jersey Joe Walcott
7. Jack Johnson
8. Ezzard Charles
9. Jess Wilard
10. Bob Fitzsimmons

Semi-modern era
1. Muhamed Ali
2. Larry Holmes (depends what you would class him as)
3. Joe Fraizer
4. George Foreman (same as Holmes)
5. Ken Norton
6. Sonny Liston
7. Floyd Patterson
8. Earnie Shavers
9. Bob Foster (including LHW resume)
10. Jerry Quarry

Modern
1. Lennox Lewis
2. Mike Tyson
3. Evander Holyfield
4. Riddick Bowe
5. Vitali Klitschko
6. Wladimir Klitschko
7. David Tua
8. Michael Moorer
9. Chris Byrd
10. Frank Bruno (although many others could take the place)
Jim Jeffries not in the 1st list is a joke, as is Willard being a top 10. How you have Wladimir above Vitali is beyond me. Archie Moore over Charles and Walcott? Very questionable lists indeed
