Default Weekly Top 20

Each week I'll posting a list of the top 20 best fighters in every division. I just thought it would be a great way for us all to voice our opinions on who we think are the best boxers in every division. So I'm starting with the heavies as it is historically the premier division in the sport. Your opinions are welcome and any of your own lists.

My list of the 20 greatest ever heavyweights:

1. Muhammad Ali
2. Joe Louis
3. George Foreman
4. Lennox Lewis
5. Larry Holmes
6. Rocky Marciano
7. Jack Dempsey
8. Joe Frazier
9. Evander Holyfield
10. Mike Tyson
11. Gene Tunney
12. Sonny Liston
13. Wladimir Klitschko
14. Vitali Klitschko
15. Jack Johnson
16. James J. Jeffries
17. Riddick Bowe
18. Bob Fitzsimmons
19. James J. Corbett
20. John L. Sullivan

Good list overall in my opinion but Dempsey is too high for me. and if you include Gene Tunney you should put in Mike Spinks. Their HW careers were similar, did nothing too great except beat the same ATG twice.

I'd include Ezzard Charles in the top 15 as well, he was a good HW. He was certainly better than Jeffries.

Charles is a good pick and I wouldn't argue with anyone who has them on their list.

As for Foreman, he is the same man who destroyed Frazier and Norton, amongst countless other top heavies of the 70s and then in his return held his own against top guys like Holyfield and won back the title aged 45. He was neevr stopped and took flush shots from some very hard hitting men. Foreman was the truth at heavy, H2H, I think he beats most.

Thanks! Greb was a great fighter, went at it with Louis although he was much the smaller man.

I believe you're thinking about Conn haha, but Greb did go at it with Tunney and actually beat him. The only light heavyweight to do so.
