Default Your top 5 fav fighters, careful placements please!

Give me your definite top 5 fav fighters of all-time. Try to place them in order, thus taking a bit of thinking to accomplish. You can only list 5. Get your thinking caps on guys. Simple thread, just not been done in a while.

I forgot what truly great taste you had.

Robbi, this is one of those ones where I hit "Submit" and then go "****", but here it is -


1 - Charley Burley
2 - Sonny Liston
3 - Joe Frazier
4 - Joe Louis
5 - Juan Manuel Marquez


It's very, very, very close between my #5 and another active fighter. I mean, flip a coins style. Out of those two, I tend to go with whichever one has a big fight coming up.

You haven't seen a lot of footage, yet he gets 3rd spot.

Given that Robbi doesn't post in General much, i'm possibly his #1 fan in that forum...I absolutley love the guy, have done since Pacquiao 1. What a fight that was.
