Default Describe your ideal heavyweight

What is your ideal heavyweight? height/weight? reach? brawler, outside boxer, inside fighter, counter puncher?

My ideal heavyweight: 6'5'', 225 lbs Southpaw with 80'' reach. Amazing footspeed and can outbox many fighters. Devastating left straight, which ends many fights by KO. Has also very good right hook to hurt opponets. Iron chin, never goes to canvas. Counter puncher style who forces his opponets to follow him.

Great stamina, excellent defense with automatic powerful counter punches...sort of like Holy.

Strong legs that would give him good thrusting power for when he's hanging out the back of me.

A multicultural, 6'6, 240lb, excessive clincher on roids who is afraid to throw his right hand for the first 8 rounds.

I'd say optimal height must be between 6'5 and 6'9, taller than that seems to generate various problems;

Weight, anything more than 230 lbs.

Most important aspect for such kind of superhws is the stamina. And a decent chin, it's enough that it doesn't crack with single shots.

If possible from a small and completely unknown country, like Brunei or something alike. But at least not American or British.
Very young, so he can rule for many years to come, driving the nationalist extremists to near insanity.
Huge in size, with loads of power and not afraid to let his hands go, but also using many of the dirty tricks wich many of the former greats were known for. And a nice quiet guy outside of the ring, always polite never bragging or mouthing off.

I would love to see the despair here if a guy like that ruled the heavies for a dozen or so years. Would be legendary!

big like valuev
footwork like Wlad, Lewis
heart like Holyfield
chin like Chuvalo/McCall
athletic like Wlad
jab like Ali, Holmes
cool like Vitali, Ali
hand speed like Chambers
explosive combinations like Tyson
power like Foreman
show boating like Ali, Roy Jones

and ... Norman Stone as trainer, so everybody has something to laugh about between rounds

Im big fan of Wlad and Lewis, but will say Vitali.
Or maybe Wlad/Lewis with Vitali chin.

I think it was Vitali. He didn't have the best heavyweight career (Ali) or the best single victory ever (Frazier UD Ali). But I think on his best night he would be the hardest heavyweight to beat.
