Looked at Cooper and Chuvalo, both just edged out, missed Mavrovic he was some tough dude. If illness had not hit him, he would walk into the top25 IMO.

Ingemar Johanson knocked out Henry Cooper.
Johansons three fight series with Patterson are boxing classics.
Lennox Lewis is the best of the bunch.
2. Johanson
3. Scmeiling
4. Klitscho
5. Klitscho
6. Bruno
7. Carnera
8. Bonavena
9. Haye
10. Carpentier

Lennox Lewis, front and center. Afterwards everyone else, toss up! Although I would put Max Schmeling ahead of both Klitshcko brothers.
