Who would you pick?
Light Heavyweight: Foster-Spinks
Esteban de Jesus
Not quite. Super talented fighter who picked up some very good wins, but after the Rosario fight, he seemed to fizzle out a little. But he...
I don't rank him in the top twenty, but it's entirely reasonable. I think he could sneak past Schmeling and Walcott, who I have at 20 and 19, but...
This match seems like a coin toss for me. Who do you think takes it.
Here's some candidates I thought of
Kessler-Froch 1 at Super Middleweight
Mercer-Cooper at Heavy
Pavlik-Taylor 1 at Middle
Palomino-Muniz 1 at...
Do you consider him a great fighter, or simply a very good one?
How highly do you rate him at lightweight?
Does the Duran win rank among the...
I think the reason this change was implemented was mainly to benefit guys like Gushiken, lesser known lower weight class fighters who deserve...
Harry Jeffra's probably worth a look.

Foreman-Lyle Round 4
Morales-Barrera Round 5
Trinidad-Mayorga Round 1

1. Joe Frazier
2. Muhammad Ali
3. Thomas Hearns
4. Erik Morales
5. Ruben Olivares
6. Joe Louis
7. Barney Ross
8. Alexis Arguello
I love this series, thanks for posting. Interesting that Foreman has so much respect for Lyle for being able to slug with him.
Iran Barkley. Over the course of 13 fights, he fought Kalambay, Hearns twice, Duran, Nunn, Benn, and Toney.
