Default Who's the best American heavyweight

Yes, I know they all suck, but I'm curious as to what people's thoughts are on this.

Ack, should have included Holyfield (HA!) instead of Fields. Sorry about that...

I'm inclined to agree. How Byrd and Chambers also do in this tournament might affect my perceptions though.

I have to say Eddie chambers in terms of new up and coming talent with the best potential, but his chin hasnt been tested yet.

Damn, what a sad list from which to choose. No quorum.

Aside from Klitschko debacle, Brock looks like a solid HW in all areas.

I can't even vote. None of them stand out as anything positive. I mean I guess it would have to be between Brock and Byrd. Byrd hadn't lost in 7 years before Wlad and Brocks only loss was to Wlad and they both got knocked out in the same round so I guess it would be about equal.

If they all sucked then why don't you do anything about it.

I greatly believe that Brock will put Chambers to sleep, and Byrd/Povetkin winner will soon follow the same fate. Too bad Brock will then be stopped by Wlad again.

I like Brewster hes the only one on the list that makes decent fights to watch, if he losses Buddy and gets his old diehard attitude back hes a tough fight for anyone in the division.
