It's not that I think these would win, but they'd be in with a shout.
Mystifying.

Ok these are the guys I'd favour

Tyson - Douglas, Holyfield, Louis, Ali and potentially Holmes/Lewis but I'm not sold on either.

Ali - Frazier.

those guys I would favour to defeat any version of Tyson / Ali. As for who could, it's hw boxing and in any given fight, any given fighter can cause serious damage with the perfect shot. Dozens could do it given the right set of circumstances.

I understand. Well, it's not the ones I think have the most chance, because Ali. More like I search for types that have a stylistic edge. Tyson does great against opponents backing up. I think fast starters with a huge punch have a fair shake in a shoot-out, hence Briggs and Cooper.

Interesting choice of words.

I think Holyfield has the most underrated jab in the history of the division.

His jab was pretty awesome, yet hardly anyone mentions it.
