Well,

I really like Patterson.

I give him credit for wanting to fight bigger guys, he was exciting to watch and the youngest undisputed hw champion.

He even broke his contract with Cus D'Amato in order to fight Sonny Liston who, people seem to forget, was a damn beast

Being totally unbiased, maybe he is not a top10 atg at hw, but I'd surely include him in a top 15/20.
