1) Muhammad Ali - Fundementally flawed but he made up for it with sheer speed, hand and foot. He was smart, had the ability to adapt and neutralise. Had incredible heart and determination complemented by arugably the best jaw and ability to absorb punishment in boxing history. He beat Liston, Frazier, and Foreman all whom i consider top 10 fighters.
2) Joe Louis
3) Larry Holmes
4) George Foreman
5) Rocky Marciano
6) Joe Frazier
7) Mike Tyson
8) Jack Dempsey
9) Sonny Liston
10) Jack Johnson
had to add an 11
11) Lennox Lewis
Frazier's 15th round

1. muhammad ali- he's the funniest fighter i've ever seen, and his style is intoxicating to watch.
2. jack johnson- i like how he ****ted on white america back then and made whites look inferior to blacks (when the opposite was thought at the time), by destroying the racist james jeffries.
3. jack dempsey- i like his fighting style, and he was a class act in real life.
4. mike tyson- his style was entertaining, similar to dempsey, plus his out of the ring antics were funny as hell!
5. jersey joe watcott- he was like the hw's precursor to muhammad ali, and i liked his frustrating two-step dance.
6. joe louis- i also liked how he made whites look inferior in the ring as well, but he also made blacks look good socially because he was well-behaved.
7. floyd patterson- i like his style too, plus he had a good ring attitude.
8. george foreman- he's a christian like me can't argue with that, and very humble outside the ring as well!
9. joe frazier- he was a destroyer, and he also had a good ring attitude. plus only frazier could handle the constant taunting from muhammad ali that frazier was given, and he handled himself quite well at those times.
10. larry holmes- he fought similar to ali and i enjoyed watching his fights.

1)Rocky Marciano-The Brockton Blockbuster Love his fighting style his strength,his heart,stamina and pure rentlessness. He was a nice guy in and out of the ring who was always conditioned,he broke bones,clogged blood vessels,put carmine vingo in a coma and on his worst fight still got a decision,49-0-0 untouched, my favorite fighter, The Rock, and beside for George Foreman, Strongest hitter
2)George Foreman-he's a great fighter,and he's hella strong, just a great fighter overall and had a great comeback
3)Joe Frazier-Like Rocky but add Handspeed and foot work, and subtract ALITTLE strengh,but he was still really strong and is up there with the strongest,i like his style and how he's kinda like Rocky and tyson combined. He beat Ali and thats pretty Noteable
4)Mike Tyson-"My style is impetious,My defense is impregnable,and I'm just furicious i want yo heart, i eat his children" lol i like in the 80's when he had explosive punching power and just his bobbing and weaving alone is something to awe at,in his prime he was an awesome fighter
5)Jack Dempsey-with a name like the Manassa Mauler how can you not like him, i like his power and speed and he's on of my favorite really old fighters.
6)Joe Louis-i liked his power and i mean he could basically KO someone with either hand (like mike tyson),and i just enjoy seeing some of his older fights
7)Jersey Joe Walcott- he was one of the better fighters in the 50's and he Knocked Rocky Down gotta give him credit for half of the times rocky got knocked down (2)
8)Archie Moore-I give archie moore alot of respect i mean the man fought into his late 40's and he got alot of punishment, most knockouts by any boxer, he knocked out more than 140 boxers, and i like how he trained , he also knocked down rocky so that deserves saying
9)Larry Holmes-he was 48-0-0 at one point in his career that says something, I don't like some of the stuff he said but some of the stuff he did was noteable and i do think his achievements were impressive
10)Muhammad Ali-yes muhammad ali makes it to my top 10 i don't hate him as a fighter, some of the things he accomplished in the ring are impressive to say the least,his handspeed and footwork in my opinion are unmatched, and even after his prime he still gave Joe frazier hell (Ali v Frazier III), so that says something,he was a good fighter, not the strongest but definitly the fastest (not to say he didn't have strength), I mean i gotta recognize somebody who beat Joe Frazier twice, and George Foreman once
thats my top 10

1.) Joe Frazier. Amazing heart and stamina, the perfect match for Muhammad Ali for some truly memorable fights
2.) Sonny Liston. Intimidating, powerful and dominant, but with a very interesting and obscure personality.
3.) Joe Louis. He simply made boxing look beautiful.
4.) George Foreman. Some funny antics but also a great crowd-pleaser. Has the distinction of two careers with two completely different personalities.
5.) Jersey Joe Walcott. A very tricky and unorthodox fighter that was always fun to watch
6.) Max Baer. A powerful puncher that I feel could have done better if he wasn't afraid of his own power, so to speak. Great personality too.
7.) Evander Holyfield. Sorta like Joe Frazier, a real warrior, also exposed Mike Tyson who would be one of my least favourite heavyweights.
8.) David Tua. What can I say? We're both New Zealanders with Islander heritage, I love his voice and how he can actually be quite deep when he speaks. Seems to be a very class guy in general.
9.) Jack Johnson. His defiant antics outside the ring are both numerous and funny. I think sometimes people overrate him however.
10.) The handcuffer of lightning, Muhammad Ali. The man I love to hate and hate to love. I don't think anyone needs any explanation for why.
