Ezzard Charles' Heavyweight title reign deserves quite a bit more attention than it got.

Tommy Burns, he set the record for decades on title defenses by KO. I think Larry Holmes took it of him.

The beating Johnson gave him really hit his legacy.

The poor guy was only something like 5 ft 8 as a heavyweight. He deserves more respect than he gets.

Bob Foster. Holds record for 11 KOs in LHW title fights. Ten title successful defences in 4 years with 7 KO's.

Bob Foster was a true legend of the sport. His title reign is certainly not underated by me.

The problem with Bob is that people tend to remember him for his occasional forays into the HW division and his 8 round defeat by Ali. He is sometimes viewed as a third rate HW rather than a first class LHW.

Larry Holmes reign was underrated. He was champ for 7 years.

Hi Ezzard, I agree and anyone who judges Foster on his losses to Ali and Frazier rather than as a light heavyweight is not a proper boxing fan in my opinion.
