Default Re: So what exactly is wrong with Nat Fleischer's top 10 heavyweight list?

1958 as I was living

1Johnson
2Jeffires
3Dempsey
4Louis
5Marciano
6Ruby Red
7Tunney
8Max Schmeling
9 Jim Corbett
10 Gene Tunney.

This is 58, so it was not long before Louis and Marciano retire, so they would have been fairly recent. Johnson and Jeff were still view as 1 and 2, as flip flopping them around and all. Dempsey follows shortly behind them. Corbett is still a top tier in that time. was temping in putting Sullivan in place of Schmeling.
