Default Heavyweight Tournament

It is a forgone conclusion that most, with a few exceptions Black Heavyweights are among the best of the Heavyweight Champions. Champions like Ali,Louis, Johnson, Tyson just to name a few. What I was thinking was, what about the rest of the Champions in a Tournament. What was left was a very, very competetive, wide open Tournament. Many, many interesting match up's. No clear cut winner in this one.

When casting vote's, please try to give an analysis & round result if possible.

First round will be 10 Rounds. Second Round 12 Rounds. Rounds thereafter will be 15 round Bouts.

Here's my list of 32 fighters. If anyone has any suggestions. Please state which fighter & which one you like him to replace. This should be a competitive tourney, with many interesting matches.
In No particular order:

1. Rocky Marciano
2. George Chuvalo
3. Jack Dempsey
4. Gene Tunney
5. Max Schmeling
6. Gerrie Coetzee
7. Gerry Cooney
8. Wladimir Klitschko
9. John L. Sullivan
10. James J. Corbett
11. Les Darcy
12. James J. Jefferies
13. Bob Fitzsimmons
14. Jerry Quarrey
15. Max Baer
16. Oscar Bonavena
17. Vitali Klitschko
18. George Carpentier
19. Luis Angel Firpo
20. Billy Conn
21. Tommy Morrison
22. James J. Braddock
23. Ingemar Johanssen
24. Tommy Burns
25. Corrie Sanders
26. Jess Willard
27. John Ruiz
28. Nicalai Valuev
29. David Tua
30. Henry Cooper
31. Primo Carnera
32. Jack Sharkey

Yes, the Black Heavyweight Champions are among the best the Division has to offer. This Tournament is a little different. Consisting of the rest of the Champions in Heavyweight history. Not for the greatest Heavyweight Ever.

Exactly. Tua is a Samoan, Just a Tournament of other than Black Heavyweights. Just something a little different.

I could have easily dona an All-Black Tournament. But the Names would be pretty much the same as in any Heavyweight Tourney. But this IS different & highly competitive. Look at the names, No real clear cut winner here. Should be interesting...

I'm sure la-califa didn't construct this list with racial prejudice in his heart. He just used skin-color as a divider because he suspected the end-result would be an interesting tournament.
