Apart from the placement of Tyson, Foreman, Liston, Norton, Louis and Charles that's a great list

I believe Norton would do well head to head with Louis.

Louisīs achievements are better of course.

It always depends what criterias you use when making these lists.

Very much. I rate Norton, a very good fighter. But with Louis he'd find himself in with a guy properly designed to knock him out. A guy who would be hitting him very hard and accuratley from round one. Norton's chin may be hard to come by but Louis doesn't need to hit a man on the chin to knock him down, and he was a fine finisher.

Why so hard on this one? Louis is to low, Norton and Charles are too high but a case could be made for every fighter in every other placing.

These guys that are missing might be at 11, 12 etc.

I am sorry but anybody who has Norton over Louis should be horse whipped, covered in treacle and rolled in a heap of coal dust.

I see they ripped all Prime Frazier Did Beat Pr's posts of the thread. Lucky you and I were quoting them, for prosperities sake like. Did he get banned?
Looks like they banned him. Interesting.

Education education education! Not whipping.

I think it's an OK list, apart from this strange error.

Well he did threatened to do murder!

The one drawback to ESB as opposed to a boozer - threatening to kill someone actually has consequences

I was live for that mad exchange and you could see it spiralling out of control. Just out of nothing.
