I Thought this might be interesting....

Basically its going to be a "All time Heavyweights" tournament with 8 of the recent and past Heavyweights but All fighters are to be considered in their primes.

They have all been selected at random and the fights have also been randomized. I will leave the poll open for a week and at the end of the week,a winner will move on to the next round which will also last a week to then determine a Final.

Winner of Fight #1 will face winner of Fight # 2 and then the other fight is the obvious.

Vote a winner and post as to how you think it would go down.

If you choose to post and participate,please do soo in a respectful manner damnit.

Participants

1 Lennox Lewis
2 Riddick Bowe
3 Evander Holyfield
4 Mike Tyson
5 Larry Holmes
6 George Foreman
7 Joe Frazier
8 Muhammad Ali

Since I cant get the poll fixed then everyone just copy n paste the fights and Bold the fighters you think would win, then match the fighters in the next round and keep going till you settle the finals. at the end of the tournament select from the poll the fighter you think would win it all. I guess that will make some use of the poll.

Lennox in his prime, the only way to beat him was get in a lucky punch. I don't see any other way.

George Foreman vs. Lennox Lewis (Lennox ranks higher IMO but Foreman knocks him out H2H)

Mike Tyson vs. Muhammad Ali
Evander Holyfield vs. George Foreman

Muhammad Ali vs. George Foreman

The winner of Holmes-Ali would win it IMO, and that could really go either way.

Tyson would have an extremely tough time against Bowe and I'm not even sure he'd win. Bowe is tall, throws great uppercuts and straights, and has solid chin and stamina. The only thing with Bowe is that we know he could be intimidated and Tyson was the master at that.

Holmes would give Ali all types of problems, but Ali had the fastest reflexes the heavyweight division had ever seen (except for RJ). So I'd believe he'd been able to counter Holmes jab and win a close, but clear UD.

Frazier-Holyfield would be a war, both of these guys have great chins, but I don't see it going the distance. Frazier gets the late stoppage, but it really could go either way.

Lennox wouldn't be able to play keep away for long. Foreman would catch Lewis with a couple of his tremendously hard shots and stop him.

This has no bearing on who was the better Champion but this is how this tournament turns out:

Round 1:
Bowe over Tyson
Holmes over Ali
Holyfield over Frazier
Foreman over Lewis

Round 2
Bowe over Holmes
Foreman over Holyfield

Final Round:
Bowe over Foreman in greatest Heavyweight battle of all time, better than Foreman vs Lyle.

All these endings with Ali vs Lewis depress me. There is only 1 way a fight between Lewis and Foreman ends, Foreman by KO. Styles make fights, and Lewis was bound to get caught. His chin simply could not stand up to Foreman's punches.
