    Which of these men would you favor against Joe Louis, prime for prime, with every man giving his best possible performance that night? Pick as many (or as few) as apply.

    Not trying to stir debate. I just want to get everyone's votes on the record.

    Seven of them. Not so confident about Holmes and Wlad. He beats Rocky and Dempsey.

    @mrkoolkevin : If you finish these series among all HW ATGs, you may add up all votes a certain fighter accomplished (or calc a win-ratio) and do some nice statistics, leading to a prime H2H top 10 list.
    Concerning the sheer amount of evaluation going into this data, the outcome would be very expressive.

    If you pick "none of the above" shouldn't that be counted as a vote against every other fighter on the list?

    That is clearly what it is!

    I give Ali and Marciano a 50/50 shot over him, so i dunno if i should vote for them or "none of the above"

    I guess since its "favor", none
