And Ezzard Charles kicked Archie Moore's ass three times, knocking him out in their last meeting.

It's been a while since i sat down and made a list, but my top ten would probably look like this:

(in no particular order)

Ezzard Charles
Archie Moore
Sam Langford
Gene Tunney
Michael Spinks
Bob Foster
Tommy Loughran
Maxie Rosenbloom
Harold Johnson
Bob Fitzsimmons

The likes of Billy Conn, Matthew Saad Muhammad, and Jimmy Bivins probably deserve being mentioned.

i believe the old mongoose, ageless archie moore is the greatest. he dominated in his forties, no one else could say that!

I went with Ezzard mainly because of his cool ass name....J/K

Spinks is my favorite, but Charles ahs go to be considered the best.

What a great tourney that would be.
