    Default Mount Rushmore of Boxing

    Name your four greatest fighters that you would carve into Mount Rushmore. Manny Pac said his were Roy Jones, Muhammad Ali, Ray Leonard and Julio Cesar Chavez.

    You can have 2, a legends one and one in your own lifetime.

    Good question (which is why I know this is not your original idea)

    For me....


    Ali, Robinson, Marciano, Louis and....I'm struggling for the 5th......Marvin for me

    Slim started a thread which I could not find but now it is at the bottom of this thread under similar threads.

    It needs to be 4.

    You can have an All Time Legends one and/or In Your Own Life Time one.

    oops - scrap Marvin then

    my own personal Rushmore would be

    Lewis, Benn, Gatti, Marvin

    Legends would be Jack Johnson, Joe Louis, Ali and Robinson.

    Personal one would be Mike Tyson, Julio Cesar Chavez, Herol Graham and Thomas Hearns.

    Guys from my lifetime

    Floyd mayweather, he really was a super star despite being really bad at trash talk.and he did beat Pac man pretty easily and I think he's great.

    Pac Man... He's just a superstar wrecking ball and still going, so many world titles in so many weight classes and great to watch

    Saul Alvarez... He hehehe.. He is having a great career to be fair. And he's really kicked on and ditched a lot of the dodgy stuff since he left golden boy.

    And Barrera, I loved the way he switched up boxing and being a total hyper aggressive mad man... Maybe my favourite git


    I think for the legends it should be pretty easy...

    Ali of course, everyone is still obsessed with him, especially @billpaxtom

    Tyson obviously, he still has that aura

    Holyfield, he beat tyson twice who is also there

    Mayweather, beating Pacman gives him good mountainside claims.

    I can't displace the top three. But if Mt Rushmore had a few more heads, both Trinidad and Benitez would be in there for me.

    I'm going to do a mount Rushmore of officials, 3 judges and a referee!

    1. @Master my original mount rushmores had no British fighters so I think it'd be great to see one of masters scorecards when there wasn't a British guy involved, I suspect without his union jack suit hes probably a great judge.

    Front and centre! Is Adelaide Byrd... Because I need my nomination alvarez winning all the fights :S

    3. Harold Lederman(rip)... Great guy, loved his scorecards and I suspect he was bit drunk during most of them so I can relate...

    And for the referee.... I'll go with the British referees overall... Better to be over cautious than fatalities...

    On a similar theme, the most under appreciated fighters of all time that should be on Mount Rushmore.

    The greatest light heavyweight ever, longest reigning light heavyweight, best featherweight and p4p king.

    Ezzard Charles, Archie Moore, Willie Pep and Henry Armstrong.
