I know this topic is going to create a lot of controversy soo I think I'll start it off with my own list..My list is in no specific order so don't jump on me for numbers..hahaha..Also,I gotta admit,my top 10 is pro boxers and less fighters and punchers..Skill rules all in my book..
1)Muhammad Ali---We all know he's top 10..
2)George Foreman---Quite possibily the biggest puncher ever..
3)Gene Tunney---Amazing skills and only lost once in 86 fights..He also beat Dempsey twice(I know some of you will same he wasn't in his prime or wasn't as good anymore)
4)Joe Louis---We all know he's top 10..
5)Larry Holmes---He has to be top 10..It is too bad he wasn't around in the Ali,Foreman,Frazier,Quarry,Liston era..He was known as Ali's sparring partner,but was soooo much more..I'd like to know who you all think has a better jab between Holmes and Ali..
6)Lennox Lewis---He needs to get his credit as top 10 I think..He did amazing things for the sport of boxing..
7)Rocky Marciano---He never lost and retired as champ..His skills are overrated but he was one of the toughest heavyweights ever..
8)James J Corbett---For you that know of him,you know he deserves to be a top 10 heavyweight..He was a amazing boxer and had a very impressive record..
9)Jack Dempsey---He has destroyed guys who weight 50-80 lbs more then him with ease..He never backed down from anyone either and had dynamite in both hands..
10)Evander Holyfield---I had a hard time deciding between Joe Frazier and Holyfield,but I had to go with Holyfield based on the fact that I think Holyfield would of beaten Frazier in a 12 or 15 round fight..Holyfield has won the heavyweight belt more then anyone and has gone through some of the craziest moments in boxing history and prevailed..Most of his losses were due to the fact that his left shoulder had never healed and he kept fighting through the pain which then made him drop his left arm and take right jabs(Michael Moore) and right hands from massive punchers(but didn't go down during the period of time of this injury)..George Foreman even said Holyfield hit him with the hardest left hook to his body he had ever felt..Holyfield has fought the best at every weight class he was in even if it meant being 30-50 lbs smaller then his opponent..He was a very smart boxer(what punches to throw and when,how to set people up,ect.)..You could never count Holyfield out of a fight,he always had a chance to win..He definitely has one of the best chins of all time too..
