    Lewis, Ali, Waldo...

    Marciano wouldn't make my Top 40.

    Liston … Loses to Ali, and probably Holmes in a close one

    Marciano is my top H2H fighter, Louis, Ali, Dempsey and Foreman are the next in line

    He relied on his height to avoid punches and threw a lot of arm punches without proper leverage.

    Well they weren't a strength, he also did have some weaknesses, his hand speed was very low, not quick at all. Him not throwing proper punches diminishes his power and he never had a real good jab, and so Holmes, for example, would be able to build up points with it. I'd pick him to beat Holmes, but by a beatdown, not by a Technical clinic
