    I think top 10 lists are bullshit and I've always advocated for top 5 lists.

    1. Ali
    2. Lahh Home
    3. Lennox
    4. Tyson
    5. Joe Louis

    I used to be a big fan of the top 38 lists. My top 38 flyweights between 1982 and 1985 list is the stuff of legends!!!

    But now in my advanced years I can only muster the top 5's.

    This list is fairly accurate in my eyes. I'm curious @brocktonblockbust is this 1-10 in order or a general list of your 10 because if so I think you have Larry far too high. I also don't think Joe Louis is #1.

    My list:
    1. Ali
    2. Joe Louis
    3. Evander Holyfield
    4. Lennox Lewis
    5. George Foreman
    6. Joe Frazier
    7. Rocky Marciano
    8. Larry Holmes
    9. Sonny Liston
    10. Wlad Klitschko

    Left off old timers like Dempsey, Jack Johnson, Jim Jeffries...etc., since it was a different sport back then. Picked Wlad for #10 over Tyson due to his consistency and longevity at the top. Mike did win the title at a young age but his biggest wins were against a washed up Holmes and terrified Spinks.

    I liked Vitali alot but his younger brother has achieved more and dominated so he gets on my list instead.

    Joe Louis
    Rocky Marciano
    Muhammad Ali
    Larry Holmes
    Wladimir Klitschko
    George Foreman
    Evander Holyfield
    Mike Tyson
    Jack Johnson
    Jack Dempsey

    How's Joe Louis NOT #1 He has the most consecutive successful title defenses as heavyweight champion, he lost 3 years of his career to World War II, he beat anyone and everyone in his era.

    Rocky Marciano, didn't have the greatest era to fight in, BUT he made up for that by winning every single fight as a professional.

    There's no way at all that those two fighters should not be #1 & #2 all-time

    Just 'who' had the most controversial bouts.

    Well, none other than Mr. Clay.

    * Alonzo Johnson
    * Doug Jones
    * Henry Cooper I
    * Sonny Liston I
    * Sonny Liston II
    * Ken Norton II
    * Joe Frazier II
    * Ron Lyle
    * Ken Norton III
    * Jimmy Young
    * Earnie Shavers

    Too much 'stinkeroo' there to put that man in the Top 7.

    But yes, he was the 'best' showman and entertainer, for a period in time.
