joe louis all the way back at # 6 is ridiculous, hes easy 1-2.

Dempsey over Marciano is highly questionable too unless ur list is based on h2h...marciano accomplished far more than jack

Cheers buddy!

I tried to do it on accomplishments and longevity. Which would seem like the fairest way.

If it was a prime Vs prime tournament, I would expect Ali, Jack Johnson and Tyson to come out on top as they are the most complete heavyweights I've seen footage of. Though I don't suppose many will agree with me on that
