A minor correction of here- you're thinking of Lloyd Marshall, not Ray.
In Ezzard's prime, he was literally nearly unstoppable.
He eventually killed a guy in the ring and that plus age just took so much from him.
Who's above him P4P out of curiousity, in your opinion...?
I would have Charles around #8-15 all-time pound-for-pound. Pound-for-pound lists are awfully convoluted for me.
