    Obviously, Joe Walcott is the correct answer.

    But head to head I think Lennox sparks Ali out.

    This question is pretty much already answered. I'm just going to pick my favorite HW.

    I’d pick LL to win more than he’d lose against any HW ever.

    At the same time the term greatest is a bit ambiguous.

    On resume its Ali, in terms of who i'd favour to win the most if they all fought each other - Lennox.

    Head to head modern fighters have a chance. Lewis could be a horrible match for Ali. However, his resume and ability at the time off the charts.

    He was the greatest at heavyweight.
