Default ESB Top 20 HW (Official Final Vote)

Synopsis: I have been running a series of votes trying to get ESB Classics opinion on the top 20 heavyweights of all time. We have narrowed the list down to twenty fighters, and we have now reached the final voting stage. This list will be represented through a video made by me. I have a feeling many people will watch it, so I wanted theb est list possible, and I couldn't think of a better plaace to get opinions from. I urge everyone to make their opinions heard, create their list, and post it. I don't want to hear a lot of complaining when the video is done because you thought someone should be ranked higher. THIS is your chance!


Okay guys, I know we have seen a lot of these threads, but this is the final vote! This is you last chance to make your opinion heard for the a video that will be seen by many people! PLEASE participate. If you are a boxing history fan, do your sport justice, and give lend your Top 20 HW list, so we can have the most fair and balanced list possible.

This time, your list WILL be in order. Choose carefully! This thread will close on December 30. You will be allowed to edit your lists up until the 30th. After that, the votes will be tallied

You MUST choose out of the 20 fighters listed below!!

Jim Jefferies
Sam Langford
Jack Johnson
Jack Dempsey
Gene Tunney
Joe Louis
Max Schmeling
Rocky Marciano
Joe Walcott
Ezzard Charles
Floyd Patterson
Sonny Liston
Muhammad Ali
Joe Frazier
George Foreman
Larry Holmes
Mike Tyson
Evander Holyfield
Lennox Lewis
Wladimir Klitschko

You put Schmelling twice on the list (16&19) and Tyson is missing
