Default Classic Forum Collective Top 10 All-Time Heavyweights--POLL CLOSED!

Have you guys ever done something like this?

Where multiple posters list their top tens, and we do a point system?

Say....

25 points for your #1 guy
15 for #2
12 for #3
10 for #4
8 for #5
5 for #6
4 for #7
3 for #8
2 for #9
1 for #10



If you guys have done something like this before, then apologies in advance. Otherwise, let's give this thread a couple of weeks to run its course and I can tally the scores, let's say on July 15.

We can do follow-up lists for other divisions sometime after.

Anyway....

1. Ali
2. Louis
3. Holmes
4. Marciano
5. Johnson
6. Foreman
7. Lennox
8. Frazier
9. Dempsey
10. Liston

(No ties please, just a straight forward top ten)

It might throw up some interesting stuff. Your rating of Langford is going to draw stares on the street.

01 - Muhammad Ali

03 - Sonny Liston
04 - Lennox Lewis
05 - Joe Frazier
06 - Jack Johnson
07 - Larry Holmes

I was actually intending to switch Ali and Louis to mix it up, but what the hell.

#11 George Foreman
#12 James Jeffries
#13 Jack Dempsey
#14 Evander Holyfield

Ranking these four has always been nightmarish. They can be swapped around. But i'm happy with the ten.

Fair enough for me.

That was probably the least amount of thought I'd ever given any list I ever assembled. It was more of an after thought.

My list is always progressive (In terms of always changing/adapting) Currently my top 10 HW list looks like.

1. Ali
2. Louis
3. Marciano
4. Foreman
5. Frazier
6. Dempsey
7. Liston
8. Holmes
9. Johnson
10. Tyson

As far as the barely missed the cut and still in contention of making the top 10. That list would be (Holyfield, Lewis, Jeffries).

Sounds good. Curious to see how this turns out. Should be fun hopefully more people come in and post. Ali should be a clear #1 I think. It will be interesting to see how Lewis, Foreman, Liston, Johnson, Dempsey, Frazier, and Marciano eventually land. I'm also guessing to bet that Tyson will find his place in the top 10 as he's popular. In my 2 original lists he missed the top 10 but just makes it upon further review.
