People are still claiming Larry Holmes is underrated? This isn't 1982.Holmes is generally regarded as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and even placed in the top three of all time great heavyweights.This is quite a high ranking for a guy who didn't fight the all best of his era.

Few that I rarely or never see mentioned are:

HW Witherspoon
LHW Conteh
MW Tiger
WW Palamino
LW Buchanan
FW Moore

Not saying they should go into anyone's top ten but all had a fair amount of talent and at their peak would give most of the more talked about fighters a fair bit of trouble.
