This is actually the best list that I have seen in a long time and everyone has to note that this is one of the FEW lists that have Lewis in a reasonable spot, I only disagree with three things -

Tyson deserves a lower top 10 spot for that magnificent 80's bulldozer run of his, not to mention a few fair wins after that.

Dempsey's a few notches too high, but a case can be made for that region in the top 10 due to his effect on the sport, sure.

Patterson shouldn't be ranked under Wills.
