    Lennox, Vitali, Wlad in that order in terms of who was best. Though Wlad was more accomplished than Vitali

    definitely lennox, very intelligent fighter. Post Ali is an even more interesting question.
    My list.
    1. Holmes
    2. Holyfield
    3. Tyson
    4. Lennox
    5. Bowe
    some interesting other fighters in there too, golota, byrd, Mercer, tua, morrison, Foreman, ibeabuchi, then we have the klitcsko era which I've rarely bothered to watch.

    he was still the best of the last 20 years. I know you love the clit bros but they weren't so good. I picked fury, unproven fury to win easy and ending their boring era and he did it. outside of that, i had little time for them.

    I don't like Wlads style. Vitali was a murderous puncher.


    I like Lennox and Bowe

    Lennox should be ranked higher in all time lists, but if you confine the time scale to only the last 20 years the answer is clearly Wladimir. And it doesn't matter how shitty his era was. Because today it's worse.

    well stop whining then, who do you want, must want someone else? dontay? fury? sorry, it's too early to pick those guys. which is another thing, when did heavyweights start peaking in their 30's? There's a hint in there about the quality of what's around.
