    Yes. Yes. And yes, most searched. I prefaced the names with the word "Boxer," to avoid bringing up others with the same name.

    So Google DID NOT PICK THE TOP 10 HEAVYWEIGHTS OF ALL TIME.

    You just did a search to see how many times people using Google searched a boxer's name?

    Using the criteria of "number of Google searches", the #1 boxer is probably Jake Paul. (LOL)

    Although, most of these boxers are at a disadvantage since Google didn't exist when nearly all of them were in their heydays.

    Not quite, he just did a Google search. Which tells you how many webpages those words appear in, and not necessarily the boxers name. For example, 'I have two sons one called Anthony and another called Joshua' would give you a hit if you type:
    Anthony Joshua
    But not if you type:
    "Anthony Joshua"

    You can find out how many people search a boxers name, but that is a separate feature.

    Anyway, it's just a bit of fun.

    As @ecto55 said, you could take it to mean cultural impact or as others have said, just popularity in the internet age.

    So, would that explain why there are two Jacks, two Joes, two Tysons ...a Muhammad with the most pages ... and some very common Sam, George and Larrys?

    Because any time someone typed the word "Muhammad" on a page (even if they were referring to the founder of Islam), that would be included as a hit for Muhammad Ali or any time the name "Jack" was typed that would be included as a hit for Jack Dempsey and Jack Johnson?

    Since Donald Trump's name has been typed so much over the last few years, and Curry is a pretty popular spice, would it be fair to say Donald Curry might be listed as the top welterweight ever? (LOL)
