Its hard to tell how much a 1964 Liston had left. And Foreman's 1974 effort and form vs. Ali was horrible. Both guys were much better 2-3 years before they fought Ali. Conversely Vitlai was approaching his prime, and Bowe wasn't far removed from his.



My top five on those dates would be:
Vitali
Foreman
Liston
Bowe
Tyson
