Rahman -- Beats Lewis with a luck punch, and in the rematch gets snow Angeled.

Lewis quites, and so does elder Klitschko and he magically gets another belt.

No successful title def. Drawed with Toney, and Lost to OLG.

Thumbs down.

yeah i seen both fights, tyson scared the hell out of frank he was to nice to be hw champ. i do remember frank having tyson in trouble in there first fight i think that was the first time tyson had ever been hurt in the ring.
It was interesting because Frank Bruno was A HELL OF A LOT BIGGER than Mike Tyson... I really do think Mike Tyson (IN HIS PRIME) would've scared the **** out of and beaten this "RUSSIAN GIANT" GUY!

But a lot of guys were a lot bigger than Tyson, so it is hard to say.

Gee I now have to say something nice about Tyson :mad:

A prime Tyson would of had that Russian Crying on his way to the ring. The Russian has never been hit by anyone remotely close to what Tyson brought.
2nd. Reguardless of how much bigger Bruno was that Tyson, Bruno hit a ton as well, a hell of a lot harder that the Russian. Those who have forgoten are old friend Bruno, he hit HARD.

The Russian Giant stuggled aginst an old washed up RUIZ, good night, what in the hell would happen if a PRime Tyson ever stepped into the ring with him ??? Tyson KO 3

I would have to say James Buster Douglas was the worst champ. He didn't have one succesful defence. Which champion do you think had the worst skills?

I think Primo Carnera would be high on the list for lack of skills.

it hurts me to say this because he,s such a nice guy but id say frank bruno. this guy was more body building than boxing, but he could bang a bit.
He did beat oliver Mccall,who also was a embarrassment.

When we started having more then one champion I think looking them over you will agree many of them should not have there names listed as CHAMPION

Ithink Carnera lost the title to Max Bare about a year later.
I was refering to skill not longevity.
Carnera lost the title to Baer after getting Knocked down 11 times in 11 rounds. He had to have some skill to last 11 rounds with Baer.

carnera has been rated as one of the poorest of all heavy title holders.
skill to get knocked down eleven times I'm not sure i follow your logic here.

Its not the knock down part, its the fact that he tried slugging it out with Baer for 11 rounds which is almost impressive.

Rahman caught Lewis at the right time. If you remember that Lewis was off making a movie (ocean's 11) chasing Julie Roberts around the stage instead of trainging. HE came in soft around the middle, and Lewis just clowned around intill Rahman landed.

Rahman was horrible. The only other champ that comes close to him is Shannon Briggs. Saddly it looks like he might have a belt again.

At least Duoglas had some sort of Mental / Eating disorder. His skills were not the subjuct, it was his ability to stay some what sane. Poor guy lost his mom, beat the hell out of Tyson, then just spirialed down.

My vote is for Frank Bruno, and going 11 rounds being knockdown every time is no small feat, but that shows endurance more than skill I'd think.

Bruno at least had 1 succesful defence, Douglas lost his very next fight after Tyson.

Douglas lost his title like 5 months after beating Tyson, but Bruno at least defened his title once. Buster Douglas couldn't even do that.

he was only champ for about 3 months.
