Wills not in the top 20 is stoopid (everyone, not just TV).

Compiling the Top 20 list is much tougher than I thought - there is always a small nuance of information in a fighter's resume that may tip them in favour of another. Again, I'm surprised Wills is not on the list - I'd have him instead of Walcott.

Here is my list for now;

1. Muhammad Ali
2. Jack Johnson
3. Jack Dempsey
4. Joe Louis
5. Sonny Liston
6. George Foreman
7. Joe Frazier
8. Rocky Marciano
9. Larry Holmes
10. Mike Tyson
11. Lennox Lewis
12. Evander Holyfield
13. Sam Langford
14. Floyd Patterson
15. Gene Tunney
16. Jim Jefferies
17. Ezzard Charles
18. Wladimir Klitschko
19. Max Schmeling
20. Joe Walcott

I don't like Wills and Max Baer not being on the list though. Wills is borderline top ten and Baer is borderline top 15, I'm not a big fan of Tunney at Heavyweight.

Thanks for the lists everyone!! Keep em coming!


I know a lot of you including me dont agree with the final twenty fighters, but thats how it was built. Through an accumulation of our lists. The final list will be contributed by everyone, yet nobody will fully agree with it!

Thats the beauty of it!
