Yours looks good to me... I'd move Louis up to position 2 though. Maybe give Larry 3 and Ali 4 :)

Edit: on second thought move Ali down to 5 and give Dempsey 4...

Mine would look much the same as yours, if I did lists. I'd probably remove maybe Baer and replace him with Foreman.

Oh yeah, replace Tunney with Butterbean :laugh:

I respect your opinion and all, but how do you have Tyson on your top 10, and Lennox Lewis ahead of Holmes, Marciano, Frazier and Foreman.

I don't know whether or not this has been brought up or not, but Holmes still isn't in the HOF because of Butterbean. Larry should fight him again, and KO him this time... just because of that simple fact :)

LOL, Holmes will be in the class of 08. You would think Butterbean would have put up some sort of defence or mark in the first 3 rounds being 30 years younger and all.. :rolleyes:

Next time you get a chance to talk to Holmes ask him who he thinks would win between Butterbean and Valuev... That should get a good response :laugh:

Now that you mention it, I think it would happen in the first! :laugh:
Here is my comentation on the fight: DING!!! DING!!! (the bell rang), Valuev swings with a left! He swings with a right! WHOAH!!! BUTTERBEAN JUST KNOCKED HIM OUT OF SIGHT!!! The crowd starts to boo as Valuev heads to the moon, but wait! The crowd is getting frantic because Valuev just crashed into the Atlantic!!! The crowd starts to run...because a title wave has begun!!!
