G-Man was a beast. I loved his fights with Julian Jackson two ATG punchers going at it.

Shame his career came to an end in the way it did. Gerald had a few more years worth of first round TKO's left in him.

Absolutely, with those two you knew there'd be explosive bombs going off.

Didn't Gerald complain about chronic headaches and ringing tones after the first Jackson fight?

My top 5

Archie Moore
George Foreman
Julian Jackson
Thomas Hearns
Joe Louis

I don't really think Hagler or Liston deserve to be in the top 15 and Dempsey is questionable imo. Shavers is hard to include for me 'cause he knocked out so many bums and almost always lost whenever he'd step up, aside from Norton. I feel as far as power is concerned, Tyson and Louis are very similar in how they chain combinations together and lay people out. Both had good one shot power as well.

Langford, Fitzsimmons and the old timers are tough to judge since their punching was so much less explosive and powerful than the modern style punchers like Jackson, Louis and Tyson. Boxing has evolved a lot over the years and these guys are relics, really.

I also really like Bob Foster and would try to include him, just a personal thing. Plus he laid old Dick Tiger out ferociously. McClellan was a great puncher but we didn't see him for long enough at the world level to judge properly. I also really like Tyson, Arguello and Robinson a lot for this list.

Langford and Fitzsimmons have tons of OHKO's of ranked opponents. You clearly don't know what you're on about if you're doubting the power of either guy, proven ability to KTFO guys in one punch, 200+lbs and more, while weighing in under the LHW limit. Imagine Julian Jackson or G-Man knocking out heavyweights and cruisers. And people being terrified of even making matches with either despite 20+lbs or more advantages in weights, and you have Langford and Fitzsimmons.

You left out Julian Jackson .. That's what I was getting at.

Yeah I think it was his two wars with Jackson and the punishment he took in those fights that did him in.

David Haye should be in there.

It just because he isn't a 'named fighter' that people will over look him.
