    A universe without The Morlocks scarcely bears thinking about....

    True. We didn't talk much, but used to butt heads a lot, but got over it. I grew to enjoy his presence.

    That's right i think it came out later the hand was potentially fragile coming in.

    I once had Jack Dempsey #4 on my all time heavyweight list. I was wrong. Objectively, i can't rank him that high anymore. Although i do think Dempsey gets underrated on this forum now a days.

    Great thread.
    For me:

    Michael Moorer
    Julian Jackson
    Mike Tyson
    Tony Lopez
    Jeff Lacey
    Jorge Paez
    Terry Norris
    Germain Taylor

    Not so say they weren't good or even exceptional in Mike's case, but they fell short of my expectations in some way.
    I've forgotten a few...

    Right, me too. Jeez, if we're talking prospects then I'd be here all day. :)

    I've historically tended to favor the fast and flashy guys (Ali, SRL, RJJ, Camacho, Prince Naseem, Pacman) and 1-punch KO artists while underrating methodical technician types like Duran, Toney, Hopkins, JMM and Holmes.

    Kostya Tszyu honestly looking back his resume isn't a good as I thought it was. Also he never moved up to welterweight. He just kept having predictable fights at 140.

    Obviously I don't rate Danny Jacobs as high as you do.
