Can you add Jimmy Ellis on that list. I along with a lot of people feel he won that fight.

Patterson was a light-heavy, he moved up as well. If the question was whos the better heavyweight I'd choose Klitschko but Patterson has the better resume.

Not sure what was going through my mind there.

OK I will try again:

You might want to consider whether smaller heavyweights like Archie Moore and Eddie Machen might have been able to beat guys like Sam Peter and Kirk Johnson.
