Default The Best of the Rest?

Who was the best paper titlist of all time? C'mon, we've had enough of them now, we can really debate this, or maybe even put together a fantasy tournement. I'll list the ones I remember; and if I forget anyone, just let me know. I won't include the paper titlists who went on to win lineal recognition because that disqulifies them, 'kay. Here we go...I'll seperate them by belt and the four "Multi-Paper Titlists" are in their own league...

Just about any of the 80's guys could have been if they stayed off the rock but I think Vitali beats more of the ppl on the list then the rest...I'll take a look again later and see ..

Vitali when he was healthy and on top of his game was an incredible volume punching heayvweight, especially given his size. I've never seen such a big man so adept at applying steady pressure throughout the course of a fight. The result was one of the most impressive KO percentages a heavyweight has ended a career with.

Vitali it is. Extremely underrated heavyweight IMO. Next to Lennox Lewis he was the best man over 6'4" I've seen and that includes Bowe. Strength, skill, good reflexes, heart, focus, good P4P handspeed, and an iron chin, he had it all.

Right now my vote in that regard, would probably be Botha.

paper titlest

** Jimmy Barry hands down. Little Tiger retired 58-0-10 with the last 8 draws coming his last 2 years after killing Walter Croot in the ring.

The first paper titlest known, he also held the banty title and had an incredible 38 KOs, an astounding feat considering some of his bouts were bare knuckled and this was the NC era where half the fights were not scored because of legal regulations. Quite a physical speciman for a little guy too.

On potential, from the list of paper-heavyies, Dokes, Spoon, Page, Tubbs, and both Klitschkos are about even. Morrison,Mercer, and Brewster had enough power to put any of them on queer street. And Ruiz (yeah I know....can't believe I'm admitting it), Norton, Berbick, Coetzee, Damiani, Byrd, Jones, & Toney all were capable of finding a way to win against all odds....they are the unlikely dark horses.


Any suggestions on how to organize a mythical tournament?

I'm thinking....start off with organizational champs on teams, so to speak. True the WBA has more than anyone else; but we can divide the multi-belt holders out amoung the short changed "teams" or have them on their own team due to their distinction of having more than one belt a piece.


Ideas?
