Johnson and Marciano are too high, and so is Dempsey at 6.
Not as bad list, really, but old timers are going to be hard to remove from the top spots as they fought in era when fighters took on many more contenders and defended their title far more often. There’s many I’d change, but decent overall.
Good to see Holmes rated ahead of Foreman, as well as being better in their primes, I thought he was better in the 1990s too, when George avoided him so much I thought he had a peanut allergy.
Avaunt! Name the man who has done this outrage. We shall run the blackguard through!
I fear a mass suicide may take place…hide the Kool Aid!,
Whoever the fellow is, he's enjoying boxing wrong. He must be stopped.
Those are my top 3 also
I don't like Ali one bit but he's my no.1 HW
I have objections to this list:
This content is protected
but not on this one:
1. Muhammad Ali
2. Joe Louis
3. Larry Holmes
4. Lennox Lewis
5. Rocky Marciano
6. George Foreman
7. Joe Frazier
8. Jack Johnson
9. Mike Tyson
10. Evander Holyfield
This is how things seem to fall into place.
It's hard (impossible?) to make a HW ATG Top 10 list that everyone will agree on. It should be made in such a way that there are as few objections as possible. Which list is better
Myself, I don't argue about HW top 10 any more as long as your man has Ali and Louis in the top two (any order) and the other 8 are drawn from about 16 different names (No Vitali, No Langford, No Charles, No Walcott) in any order. So I am down with that list, yo.
One of our members said Ali wasn't in his top ten .
Yes, he's a very naughty boy.
I guess it's official, Sullivan whoops Bowe
Must have been Floyd himself or one of his lackeys ROFL
Demsey at 6 and Wills worse than top 20. That's interesting.
