I believe Lennox Lewis was born in England, it was his mum that was Jamaican I think. Don't know about the others

I can't figure any list that would have Bruno ahead of McCallum. One was a great fighter. The other people liked to talk about a lot.

In one of those "Legendary Nights" documentaries they referred to him as the Jamaican-born Englishman who represented Canada at the olympics.

Trevor Berbick was a decent heavyweight.

You obviously don't 'know'. Lewis was born in West Ham. Mike McCallum's the most obvious choice here.

Mike McCallum is the first that immediately spring to mind. The I suppose Trevor Berbick and Owen Beck.

What about Simon Brown?
He was Jamaican I believe and he was a damn good fighter in his day.
