How highly do you rate Ezzard Charles?
In an all-time sense? The GOAT at light-heavyweight by my reckoning (a historically stacked division, also) and one of the ATG heavyweights also. I don't even need to reference his astounding resume, which is quite clearly one of the best in the history of boxing.
The victory over Joe Louis, albeit a past his prime Louis, goes a long way. We're talking a 184lber clearly beating perhaps the greatest heavyweight of all time. Excellent fighter, and a clear top 15 all-time great. But where do you rate him?
