Nice list I’ll add it as a response to my blog post. No Larry Holmes? Also Holyfield beat George Foreman, so shouldn’t he be ranked higher, I guess the reason bert sugar did it was because George won the title at 45, and Holyfield failed to do so.

I think you're comparing apples to oranges when you say Holyfield beat Foreman.

He beat an old man.
Could he have beaten Foreman when he was in his prime?

Boxing's pretty much dead, replaced by MMA.
I doubt you'll see another great heavyweight champion.
