I struggle horribley with Marciano.

I don't mean to disrespect him at all, he's a cool guy, I just think a lot of the guys I rate above him would murder him. What to do?

Only 13 slots in a top 13.


Let's see yours (as i've shown you mine).

It's ok to show bias to a favourite if you'll admit it I guess.

Dempsey is VERY low. So is Lewis.


Care to comment?

Lewis could have been higher i guess...but he was ko,d twice in his prime...that did not happen with any of my top 10 ATG....
Dempsey is another story...he lost twice to Tunney ...and got ko,d once in the first round...

Default Re: Your number 11-20 great heavyweights of all time

11) Sonny Liston- Destroyed Patterson, Williams, Folley
12) Riddick Bowe- won 2 out of 3 vs. Holyfield(#9)
13) Jack Dempsey- Never fought Wills. Never know if he was the #1heavy in the world without that fight.
14) Jim Jeffries- Dominated, but fought during racial discrimination.He was
another of the white champs that didn't have to prove it
against black fighters(Jackson was in his late 30's).
15) Harry Wills- Beat Sam Langford more times than not. Can't crack top
10 without win over Dempsey
16) Max Schmeling- Beat a young Louis(#2)
17) Gene Tunney- Beat Dempsey, and Dempsey wasn't that old.
1 Jim Corbett
19) Peter Jackson
20) Floyd Patterson

I'll have to be honest, I've never listed this high before, going off the top of my head. I may make some changes later.

Hopkinsfan07, no disrespect, but I don't think he did.

Vitali is famous for winning, points wise, against Lewis before being stopped on that cut. After that he beat Kirk Johnson, Corey Sanders, and Danny Williams. I'll give you Sanders beating Wladimir. Vitali doesn't really have any more wins over top guys, unless you want to count Larry Donald. He was beating Byrd on points, but quit.

Wladimir has beaten, if I am giving you Donald; Botha, McCline, Jefferson, Peter, Byrd(twice), and Brock.

Neither one of these guys are knocking on an all time top 10 with these opponents, but I think Wlad edges him at the moment.

Vitali is coming back, so things could change.

I have yet to do even my all-time Top 10 heavyweight list!!!!


The truth is, I can't decide who's 9 & 10...the four contnders for those places are Dempsey, Liston, Frazier and Holyfield. So two of those are 11 and 12 in this thread.
