I would have to rank Rocky below Liston and Tyson I'm afraid. I know the guy was tough but he was just too little and I don't just mean his weight. His reach was too short. Holyfield showed a fighter can put on weight to compete at heavyweight so he could have been up there but there is a tendancy to cut. Razor sharp jabs like Holmes and Ali would keep him ay bay and mess his face up. Slow to start to and that canonly end one way against Foreman and probably Tyson who was extremely effective in the first 3 rounds.

George Foreman Report Abuse

About right for Foreman though I would have him above Frazier for obvious reasons! ("Down goes Frazier, down goes Frazier!"). A punchers chance against Joe Louis to. Louis was slow and abit chinny. He was decked a few times in championship bouts.

This man is the true king of the heavyweights. He beat the best boxers in the best era of heavyweight boxing. He stopped Liston, foreman, Frazier and several other heavyweight legends.

I would fancy Holmes against Foreman but I just have a feeling Frazier would have been all over him like a rash!

Jack Johnson Report Abuse
The Galveston Giant
14 points - added 12 years ago by reznick - 1 comment
Comments:
Having now studied all available internet footage of Johnson, I have come to the conclusion that he is overrated. In the vast majority of cases it was just a case of a big black man beating up a little white guy. And there are occassions of the little guys knocking him down or even out. I can appreciate his parrying made him difficult to hit but alot of his time is spent grapling. Can you really see this guy blocking punches with a Mike Tyson or Joe Frazier raging at him from every angle? And with that suspect chin? I don't think so some how but I do see him perhaps being successful against a lumbering giant like Foreman
