Top 10 also is not top 5. All the same, justification is all I ask for. I do not outright oppose Ali being in a top 10 list, though I would not put him there and vehemently refuse that he may be classified as top 5. Additionaly, I feel Ali fanboys get a pass while Tyson ones do not. If anything, Tyson fanatics receive way too much flak. Both were larger than life figures, so fandom is expected. The extent of Ali's being permissible though, from my encounters, is unjustifiable on its own and more so when one considers how mean I feel many are to the more vocal proponents of Tyson.
