    Jimmy young ducked outside of the ropes in the ali fight. As for foreman, i think young had his number.

    Donovan ruddock !!!!! He ducked nobody !!!! He was ranked 1 by wbc to fight Holyfield he didn’t even have to face Lewis all he had to do was wait - but Donovan took the fight and made the final four happen ( Lewis v ruddock ) bowe v holy ) if ruddock didn’t fight Lewis he wouldn’t have lost his number 1 ranking ... ...... win or loose razor ruddock came to fight and ducked nobody !!!

    I was just gonna say!
    Donovan Ruddock was a bad man. But his personal life got to him. Definitely after the Lewis fight.
    A real shame because he was still quite young at 28.

    Folley stuck around in the top for more than a decade I think and gave Ali a good fight despite being old. Quarry also stuck around for a long time and beat a good number of ranked opponents. But the answer must be Wills, surely

    Why Cleveland Williams name keeps popping up in these discussion, I'll never know.

    I think those two Tyson fights in 3 months finished razor off especially the rematch !! Broken rib - broken jaw - Definetly not healthy 2 battles like that .........
