My mistake.. I stand corrected with Kessler because Jones was already campaigning at LH by the time Kessler became champion..

Benn is a different story.. Their caeers ran identical paths.. Both fought at MW and SMW between 89-96.. I know Benn wanted Jones, but he got McClellan instead, where as Jones fought neither of them.. Jones fought mainly IBF contenders, who in my opinion were at the shallow end of the pool..

Haven't you been crying for the Klits to fight Haye since before Valuev, when he'd faced absolutely no one?
You're still talking as if the Holyfield fight wasn't going to happen. Why? It was going to go down until Mike went to prison. How can you not know this?

The Foreman myth is that Mike ducked him, which isn't true. That fight didn't even go to the negotiation table.

And no I haven't been crying for the Klits to fight anybody. I would rather watch paint dry than watch them fight.

"Entertaining" isn't a factor in determining the greatness of a fighter. If it where Floyd Mayweather would be a club fighter and Arturo Gatti would be the GOAT.

I was hoping to have a interesting debate, but instead all I get is opinions stated as facts and accusations of being a fanboy, lol

EDIT:
On further thought after watching another entertaining Tyson highlight vid on Youtube, I have now decided to place him at no 1 on my ATG list

Benn wanted to fight Jones after McClellan back in 95

Two great wins over Tyson and ko win over Moorer, but he was on the slide in your opinion?
It was also common knowledge that Douglas was going to get wiped out by Tyson, if you get my point.

Is that the same Larry Holmes who was way past prime and took the fight at around 7 weeks notice?

You know if you put done Lewis's resume, you also put down Tyson's:
Common Opponents:
Tyrell Biggs
Donovan Ruddock
Tony Tucker
Frank Bruno
Evander Holyfield
Francois Botha
Andrew Golota
Or were these guys all prime when Tyson fought then and then completely shot when Lewis fought them according to you?

If you make a claim you'd best be prepared to back it up with some facts: Your "opinion" plus $4 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
