Well deserved! Great Poster! - Barnburner 
Mourning - Anti-Gang - Melanoma - Barnburner Adoptee - Bone Cancer - Child Exploitation and Abuse - Hope and Support - Peace - Retinoblastoma - Right to Life - Student Sexual Assault - Barnburner 
Default Tyson, Holyfield and Lewis.

Who is greatest of the 3? I've seen them in every order possible, so I want to get posters opinions on this, poll to vote.

How do peak for peak match-ups with each of them go?

i like a peak Tyson over damn near anybody including these two but thats just me.

I realise Lewis and Holyfield have perhaps left a better body of work behind but on his very best night i like Tyson to stop both of em

Holyfield gets greatness points for his excellence as a Cruiser too

Lewis imo is the lesser fighter of the three but may actually have the best HW resume

I like the quote of Sonny Liston: "You can't separate a champion from his time".

Tyson, Holyfield, Lewis - they've all been No. 1 at one stage of their careers. I settle for that.

I am a big fan of Tyson, but I cannot put Tyson before Holyfield, Lewis. They have the better wins.

Tyson was the better fighter.

Good poll, will be interesting to see the results. Tyson beats Lewis and would beat Holyfield although I am not so sure of him beating Holyfield. I think Holyfield beats Lewis.

Lol, I just gave my opinion on who I think would win at their peaks like the thread starter asked.

It matters what people think, If everyone thinks someone is great it don't matter if he is a peice of feces. Not on planet Earth it don't matter.
