Default Aussie Heavies in Title Bout

Going through the list of heavyweights in the PC boxing sim Title Bout, I notice that there aren't too many Australian heavyweights. Who are the 15 all-time heavyweights with some claim to being from OZ that should be included in Title Bout Championship Boxing?

Too tough? OK. Make it ten. Who are ten Aussie heavyweights who should be included in Title Bout? Joe Goddard "The Barrier Champion" is definitely one. Frank Slavin is another.....

Peter Jackson.
"Aussie" Joe Bugner...kidding!
um...
Jimmy Thunder...
Cassius Craig Peterson

Mark DeMori (in the not too distant future).


Maybe an easier question would be to name 15 Aussie Heavyweights.

What about Bill Lang? Bill Squires. Aussie Dave Smith. Alf Gallagher. Ambrose Palmer. C'mon lads. Search your memories. They weren't world champions, but there were Ausssie and New Zealand heavyweights who gave good accounts of themselves against world class fighters....

Our heavyweight division is in the best shape it has been for a long time. But unfortunately that isn't saying a lot.

usa being the home of the heavies and having near 300 million people can't exactly rave about their recent efforts in the heavy division either.

we have few boxers, so we should never have multiple top boxers in any division really.

I'd say a prime Kali Meehan would have something to say about that.
