Roy Jones (maybe)
Jameel McCline (in his prime he was more than just good , had a serious series of wins then)
Ibeabuchi (just worth mentioning , i really don't know if he could win this)
Holyfield (prime)
Ali (i believe it should be an even close fight - like so many times with ali , too many times)

i see holmes as a better version of ken norton , something like ali.
they had similar styles didn't they ?
Interesting viewpoint. I would n't give half those guys a chance. Still,this is the beauty of debate. No,Holmes and Norton were polls apart,stylistically.
