Default Who are the best white Heavyweights ever?

If we were to compile a top 10, what would it be. Some of the obvious names (Rocky, Vitali, Johannson (I think so) )...so of the older guys from the pre Louis era, Dempsey etc.

Just out of boxing curiosity of people's opinions. I have never been racist here and this thread has no hint of racism behind it.

Q2)

Who is the best white HW ever? Both lbs/lbs and alltime list?

Oscar Bonavena was white. Argentines are 90% white.

George Chuvato.

Its not a bad list of fighters. Dempsey, Rocky, Kilt, Schmeling...much better then people give it credit for.

So from that list, who is the best p4p, and who would be the most successful in a 'super league' of great HW?

Vitali Klitschko has huge size and power advantages.
