Amongst big guys (6'3" +) who was the best in fighter?
Talking HW's here. Amongst big HW, who was the best in-fighter. Ali had no inside game really. Lewis had a good uppercut but that was it. Bowe had some slick skills inside, shortened his shots et al.
But I cant put a winner on the list.

lewis had a very good jab and a great right hand
good boxing skills
he's one of the best h2h HW in my eyes
that being said, ali was 6'3" ish depending on who is holding the tape and is the best ever h2h HW in my eyes
he wasnt joe frazier, but he had some tricks inside. he knew how to hold, cover up, take steam off of shots, take a break/breather, etc. if he got away with it he'd pull a guy's head down toward the ground. if you've ever fought a tall guy you know what i am talking about. that sh#t sucks
edit : i did not see the "in" fighter
i thought it was just best fighter over 6'3"
i would have to revisit the topic. riddick bowe is a nice one. he could do it all, really, but he was a very useful fighter inside
i need to go to bed

Though 6ft2 I believe, Ike Ibaebuchi was very good inside.
Buster Douglas on his day was also pretty damn good on the inside for a big man.
Foreman as well.
