Muhammad Ali, Champion
  1. George Foreman
  2. Joe Frazier
  3. Ron Lyle
  4. Oscar Bonavena
  5. Joe Bugner
  6. Ken Norton
  7. Jerry Quarry
  8. Chuck Wepner
  9. Henry Clark
  10. Larry Middleton.

Although I have always been (a bit) puzzled as to why Joe never faced that many big punchers besides Foreman, your point above is null and void as these ratings were taken after Fraizer had beaten Quarry who, at the time of their fight, was rated above Ron.
