Who the hell are you to throw my words back at me?

Stop being defensive and answer my criticism with a positive response rather than a negative defensive question... Or have you something to hide?

No Tyson?! Dempsey also should move up at least 3-4 spots too.

How do you justify putting Jack Sharkey and Gene Tunney on your list and not Tyson even on it? He had ten title defenses, was youngest ever champion, and was a two time champion. Those accomplishments definently warrant at least a top 15 ranking, and I havent even mentioned head to head!

Tyson head to head is even a greater fighter than he is when talking about accomplishments, almost everyone agrees to this. He demolished tall, clever boxers like Larry Holmes, Tyrell Biggs, Pinklon Thomas, Tony Tucker, Carl Williams, and Tony Tubbs. He destroyed one of the greatest light heavyweight champions Michael Spinks, destroyed big tough punchers in Bonecrusher Smith, Frank Bruno, and Andrew Golota. He also stopped Berbick, a guy who went the distance with a peak Holmes, in 2 rounds.

How does that put him below 20th on an ATG list?

Clever spin Mr Blair, answer a close question with an open answer, that way, you do not have to defend yourself!

Do any of you guys think Holyfield should be excluded because of the steroid issue?

The brightest flames burn out the quickest.

Tyson was a staggering force of nature aged 18-25.

After that he was gone.

LLs candle never really got going, so his athleticism aged very well.

When his peers were punch drunk, he accepted morally cheap, legacy-building fights with them...

I know I keep beating up on Lewis but I feel strongly that he is sneaking into company he doesnt really belong with.

Does Buster Douglas count as a "twilight loss" for Tyson? He was 30 when he faced Holyfield for the first time - twilight?
