On what basis are we talking about here? Best overall record? Best record vs strength of opposition? Best pay per view sales? Best social influence? Boxing has been around so long that it is very difficult to pin down just one best boxer.

Went with Robinson based on that list. Technically amazing and back in a day when you didn't do training camps, but just lived a lifestyle of boxing. That's what true fighting is all about: Constant preparedness.

Went with Robinson there.

Mayweather certainly should be up there. Pernell Sweet pea too.

Tyson ???? Not even a top 10 HW IMO. Sure he's cool and was exciting, But no a top 10 HW IMO.

Ezzard Charles
Holyfield
Joe Walcott
Marciano
Dempsey
Ali
Foreman
Joe Louis
Smokin Joe
Gene Tunney

And Pry even Lewis...IMO all better than Tyson IMO.

Pretty crazy that Marciano and Dempsey would be Super Middleweights today and they're considered heavyweight greats.
