I don't know if you actually intended to rate them in order, or if you were just listing them, but if the lesser is true, then Buster Douglas and Greg Page don't belong where they are.

Buster Douglas knocked out a prime mike tyson. That's an EASY top 5 head to head spot for him. We are talking about a man who at his best was perhaps the most athletic, skilled big man we have ever seen.


Greg Page? one of the greatest talents of the past 30 years. He could have been Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes combined into one. Drugs, Laziness got the best of him..but still he was a big man with amazing mobility, a big punch, great skills, and super athleticism.

I'd put Tucker and Spoon behind Tyson, Holmes, Holy an Douglas.

Good list though

Both Douglas and Page were beaten by a lot of lesser opponents, so it kind of taints their standing as head to head monsters. And Page was basically more or less a " coulda been ". But if that's your opinion of them then go with it.

This is a head to head list, not a "who accomplished the most list"

and i'm assuming we're doing them at their very best (in douglas' case, one ****ing night) rather than a composite of their performances across the decade

I understand that bro. But having bad losses to poor fighters when in your prime also raises some doubts in that department as well. Not saying its the end all be all, but it does have to be factored.

Yes, I agree with you. That does come into factor(especially with page, geez what a lazy fat ass). Buster Douglas's win over a prime mike tyson alone is enough to put him high on my list. I mean Tyson pretty much dominated almost everyone on my list in one sided fashion. Douglas steps in, and dominates tyson? Impressive stuff.
