Default The Fabulous Four

Here in the UK a few years ago we were treated to the best Heavyweight era of any generation, one to truly rival the Ali, Frazier, Foreman and Norton era. Four men, each one's weakness another skill, fearless in the ring, they took on each other in a number of classic for one shot at the world title.

Of course I can only be talking about

Skelton, Williams, Harrison and Sprott.

What are your thoughts on this great era of boxing?

This is very true.

We wouldn't even know the names Ali, Foreman, Nortan and Frazier if Sprott, Harrison, Skelton and Williams had been around 40 years ago.
