    Pick your reasons and also your list of winners if you like, I picked Foreman-Liston and here are my winners
    Marciano (just survives to take Dempsey out late)
    Frazier
    Liston
    Ali in a closer fight than people think
    Holmes
    This will probably be very controversial but I’d actually pick Fury to beat Mike, too big, would frustrate him, 50 pound weight advantage, elusive. More heart, bad matchup for Tyson. *runs for cover*

    1# Foreman vs Liston winner- Liston
    2. Marciano vs Dempsey winner Dempsey
    3. Frazier vs Holyfield winner Frazier
    4. Louis vs Holmes winner Louis
    5.Ali vs Lewis winner Ali
    6. Fury vs Tyson winner Tyson

    I only lean towards a winner in #2 and #6 and Louis over Holmes is by no means certain.

    Frazier vs Holyfield

    It'd be a brutal war between my two favourite heavyweights, I pick Frazier but either man could win.

    Foreman vs Liston, followed by Marciano vs Dempsey.

    It's hard to be sure who would have won, but maybe Liston and Marciano would be my picks, just.

    Foreman circa: 71/72 was a monster, unbeaten and brimming with confidence and meanace, truly a wrecking ball of a fighter, as much as I feel Liston was also out of the same parish, dont think he could have backed up George to any extent, so go with Foreman to bludgeon Sonny to defeat inside 4 rounds.

    Liston vs Frazier is perhaps my number 1 heavyweight fantasy matchup.

    1980 Holmes vs. 1973 Foreman.

    I pick Holmes by 11 round TKO (after getting floored in the middle rounds).
