What are your thoughts on him, and his legacy?

How great was he and how great do you feel he should be remembered and how high should he rank on a ATG list?

I should be careful, I was banned from ******** for calling him a 'steroid junkie', which I felt was very unfair but anyway. It angers me that fighters like Jones Jr, Toney, Mosley and lots of others get away virtually unpunished for taking performance enhancing drugs. Probably his great early wins at middleweight didnt come with him on steroids and for me his best wins did come then, against McCallum, Nunn, Johnson and Barkley. Talent wise he is an ATG, he has very impressive wins from middleweight to heavyweight but he should be labelled for what he did.
