    I like to think that the list should incorporate “favourite” boxer as well as “best” boxers that can compete in “All” eras.

    Marciano would get destroyed in certain eras but a Mike Tyson can compete in “every” era..that’s important to me.
    Depends on how you are defining Mount Rushmore. For me it more has to do what they did for the sport of boxing. So while Tyson is nowhere near the best heavyweight ever, he is on my list because of what he did for boxing. Otherwise, I would just list the 4 best fighters ever.
    “Nowhere near” could be defined as outside the top 20 of all time.

    Perhaps you can expand on who is above this freak of nature?

    It’s your MR so can have who you want.

    I get that “nowhere near” is a relative term, but he isn’t in my top 10 heavyweight list and at best, I have seen him maybe around 7 (for people who know about boxing and not casual fans).

    So just as a heavyweight, he isn’t at all the best. If we are talking all time, I can’t imagine he’s in the top 100. There are a ton of smaller fighters who are p4p better by far.

    But to answer your question somewhat, people like Ali, Louis, Foreman, Lewis, Holyfield, Frazier and Holmes I think are basically inarguably better. There are more people on the list that I think have a better claim to be higher than Tyson but I won’t get too far into it. Just saying that there are most definitely better fighters than him.

    Nice. On Buffer.
    I laugh at how many ring announcers have tried a moniker or two. Forget what fight I watched, the guy said "Leeeeets GO to War!!"
    meh?

    Don King, a man so infamous, we know next to nothing about every promoter but him.
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    Your last pick let you down.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
