AS for the answer to the question I rate him 1 but he is usually rated at between 1-2 on most historians lists
When would you consider his prime then? When he was getting outboxed for 14rds by the light heavyweight champion and showing how incredibly slow and plodding he was for barely over 200lbs??? Or when he was getting beaten to a pulp by marciano???
