Default Greatest Heavyweights of The Past 20 Years

Who do you believe was the best?

Here is My Top 10 Greatest Heavyweights from 1990-2010

1. Lennox Lewis
2. Evander Holyfield
3. Mike Tyson
4. Wladimir Klitschko
5. Riddick Bowe
6. Vitali Klitschko
7. David Tua
8. John Ruiz
9. George Foreman
10. Chris Byrd

Not a definitive list......opinions fluctuate.

Wladimir Klitschko may rise even higher on the list depending on the outcomes of his next few fights.

4. Wladimir Klitschko
5. David Tua
6. Riddick Bowe
7. Evander Holyfield
8. Mike Tyson
9. Chris Byrd
10. Ross Puritty

Ibeabuchi did not really beat Tua but he deserves respect for his performance against him.
Foreman was close to entering the list but he did lose many of his important fights since 1990 , and did not fight Tucker , Bowe , Lewis , Tyson and many others which were relevant in this time period . He actually managed to lose to lesser fighters , but considering the losses were over the full distance , it does make it easier for him.

Ibeabuchi did beat Tua - Ike Pounded Tua from the opening bell and staggered him in the 9th 10th & 12th rounds winning a wide unanimous decision on ALL judges scorecards for you to claim otherwise is baffoonery

Maybe you should remind the fight by watching it again.

7. Mercer
8. Byrd
9. Morrison
10. Foreman
Ross Puritty stopped Wlad as you know.
He also drew with Tommy Morrisson which is in your list , knocking him down twice in two separate rounds in the process .
Puritty lost to Corrie Sanders by decision , which is better than what Wlad did against him. Even Vitaly went down against Sanders.
He also went the distance against Rahman which is better than what Sanders did , and lasted longer against Vitaly losing only because of cuts which is again bettter than what Sanders did.
He knocked out Joe Hipp who also lost to Tommy Morrisson but was actually very close to stop him himself. I think it was a question of the doctor pick a winner because had the doctor examined Morrisson first , he would have decided that Morrisson was unable to continue as well , something like a double TKO.
Puritty did better than that.
Puritty achieved more than Morrisson who is in your list.
Now you explain Morrisson and Mercer .
