Default late 80's-90's heavyweights vs 60's-70's heavyweights

I always find it interesting to compare these two eras. IMO these were the best days for the heavyweight division. Both era's had great fighters such as Liston,Ali, Frazier, Holmes,Foreman etc in the 60's, 70's and early 80's and Lewis, Tyson, Holyfield etc. in the late 80's and 90's but what also made these times so exciting where the many other good exciting fighters guys like Quarry, Cooney, Tua, Rudduck, Morrison etc. It can be very difficult to judge the two eras and choose which fighters were actually better. I've come up with a bunch of match ups I'd like to here you're opinions on who you got in each fight and what would occur in the fight had it happened when both fighters were at there best.

Muhammad Ali vs Evander Holyfield

Lennox Lewis vs George Foreman

Mike Tyson vs Sonny Liston

Riddick Bowe vs Larry Holmes

Joe Frazier vs David Tua

Michael Moorer vs Ken Norton

Jerry Quarry vs Tommy Morrison

Razor Ruddock vs Ron Lyle

Earnie Shavers vs Ray Mercer

George Chuvalo vs Gerry Cooney
