It is defniitely Lewis over Klitschko. Arguably Klitschko is Lewis's best win, to get that at his age with his abilities and with his future reputation, that's pretty amazing stuff.

Williams and Jack were both pretty done when they met the last time.

Eder Jofre is a good mention......was not in his prime obviously..and he wasn´t a champion anymore but won 6 fights in his last year, never lost a fight in his comeback......

Rocky Marciano...after all, he retired undefeated as the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World...does it get much better?

The only one I can think of that's on par with Lewis-Klitschko is Marcel-Arguello.

In 1928 Gene Tunney who had but ONE loss to the great Harry Greb,in 1922 kod the "Hard Rock From Down Under " Tom Heeney in his very last bout before retiring from the ring..Tunney looked so damn impressive in giving Tom Heeney a shellacking...And then Tunney put the icing on the cake by marrying a millionairess...Great way to end your career I say...

I thought Moore was Marciano's swan song?

Marciano's last opponent was Archie Moore not ****ell who was his penultimate opponent.

Monzon beat Rodrigo Valdez & then retired.
