1. Skelton
2. Williams
3. Chisora
4. Francis
5. Sprott
6. McDermott
7. Rogan

Not that sure though difficult to split a few, would Skelton have gone 12 rounds with that version of Vitali?

What a pointless list and who gives a **** whos the best out of these................ zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Skelton went 12 rounds with a prime White Tyson lad.

Not really assed the lists don't mean anything.

Difficult to split Skelton, Williams and Chisora for me.

Skelton is clearly the best of the fabulously **** Fraudley/Williams/Sprott era. Good kick boxer too. Chisora isn't even British and is boring as f*ck.

Assuming Williams turns up half interested, he's clearly superior to all the others, despite having lost to several of them along the way.

Are you a spastic?? Skelton clearly beat Williams in both their 2 fights, and he twice thrashed Sprott. Losing a close fight in Prizefighter to Sprott when Skelton was in his 40s means **** all.

You stupid ****.

You're talking utter *******s. The first fight was a closely contested war, where Danny took the edge by not being a mauling ****.

The second fight, Skelton clearly outboxed a morbidly obese Williams.

If Haye/Chisora/Price/Fury were around then they would be top of the pile all day long.....so shut the **** up about Skeleton being anything else but average! ****!

Make that Stupid ****!

PS...You started with the name calling!! Na na ni naa na!!!! *****!
There haven't been 100's of British heavyweights in the past. And it is also fair to say that Skelton was better than the likes of Jack London, Reggie Meen, Mike Holden, and plenty of others.

The 1920's and 80's were much worse domestically at heavyweight.

Danny Williams at his best was certainly more talented than the others. Doesn't make him a better heavyweight, I know...

Is Chisora even in his prime yet, or his prime defined by belly size these days?
