Default Heavyweight Champions Battle Royal - Who would you pick?

Who would win in a battle royal of all the heavyweight champions in history? From John L to the Klitschkos and every belt holder between. This would be over 60 fighters I believe.

A fighter would be out when they were knocked down from a legal punch. Everyone is wearing 10 oz gloves and they are not blindfolded like they were when Jack Johnson fought in them. It goes until one man is left standing. Who would you favor?

Lewis and Holmes are a close second.

Holyfield TKO Tunney. Spread the story.

at their absolute best, you'd find the usual suspects,

John L
Jeffries
Johnson
Dempsey
Louis
Marciano
Ali
Holmes
Tyson
Lewis
Big Klit...

but I would bet just much on men like,

Jackson
McVey
JJ Walcot
and IKE, if he wasn't such a **** up... help me out who have I forgot?

Louis & Tyson overall - at their absolute best!

For reals, I would go with either Vitali, who was giant, strong as ****, had mixed martial arts training and had a major mean streak...

And Jack Johnson, who actually won his share of Battle Royales and would certainly not be out of his depth.

how big is the ring? are refs mixed in too make sure its only boxing rules..or can guys basically do whatever the **** they want? (I know the rule said you win if you knock out a guy with a legal punch, but who enforces the rules?)

I guess I was inferring a more liberal interpretation of the rules here. And then again, Lewis knew how to bend the rules like no one else.
