    Would I be wrong in saying Holmes and Foreman are your favorites?

    Leonard Johnson i meant to type, he was from Clayton in manchester, if you have never heard of him check out his history, the way he was treated by the board was nothing short of disgraceful, his achievements were fantastic.

    Not wrong at all, but Ali isn't too far. Love him. In fact, I just adore that whole 60s, 70s, and to a slightly lesser degree 90s crew.

    it's my top 10 heavyweights but I replace Johnson and Lewis with Duran and Hagler, I always toy with the idea of replacing Dempsey with Bowe too but it's a toss up

    but they place higher

    Louis
    Ali
    Marciano
    Frazier
    Hagler
    Tyson
    Duran
    Foreman
    Patterson
    Dempsey/Bowe
