Very true brother.

Black heavyweights have dominated deep and talented divisions throughout history.

Jack Dempsey might be the highest ranked White Heavyweight and he ducked the Great Harry Wills.

In all seriousness tho I think Dempsey and Marciano are the only two white heavies you could consider as being all time greats.
Maybe Vitali at a push.

Marciano's best wins:

Joe louis
Jersey Joe Walcott
Ezzard Charles
Archie Moore

Pitiful to say the least. All faded and old Champs.

That resume does not cut it for a top 10 spot.

Very much doubt it. Most are race-mixed but they are still majority black.

I have the Klitschko brothers in my top 10 as well as Tua who is not black.

And Jack Johnson ducked Sam Langford and some others I think , he is overrated for publicity/popularity reasons , but Langford achieved more than him even at HW , Langford avoided no one except of Jeffries probably. But Langford was a man far from HW who fought at HW just because he was so good and avoided , he was even further from a HW by the time Jeffries was the champ. So I do not accuse him of ducking anyone.
