Default Re: p4p heavyweight

Just looking through a few of my mags from recent years, and in regards to Lennox Lewis, the highest placement that I've found for him was 9th, which was his postion in the p4p rankings for the May & June 2003 issues of The Ring.

The May 2003 issue features the year-end "best fighter" poll as elected by the "experts", though, if you wanted that, which would show this;

-Larry Holmes' highest finishing position was 3rd in both 1983 and 1984
-Pinklon Thomas finished tied for 8th in 1984
-Michael Spinks finished 3rd in 1985
-As stated by others, Mike Tyson finished first in 1988 and 1989
-Buster Douglas was 5th in 1990
-Evander Holyfield's highest placement was 3rd in 1991
-Rid**** Bowe finished 5th in 1992
-Lennox Lewis' highest placement was 7th in 2002
