Cheers bud.

I'm a big fan of both heavyweights, I just wanted to keep it real.

Yeah, I've never been into nitpicking a clear ATG's resume to come to the conclusion that they aren't in opinion, an ATG. The thing is, you can do it with most any heavyweight with the exception of Ali. I don't think any Tyson fan in their right mind would claim his era was anywhere close to the toughest but it isn't, for example, as if the likes of the eras Marciano, Holmes or Lewis (as you showed) fought in are vastly superior. So superior that Tyson isn't an ATG heavy? No way.

True, there are dozens of ATGs with on paper fairly average resumes.
