If you sit and watch ESPN Classic, and you watch about 20 fights from Tyson in his day, you say, "Man, that guy was the best there ever was" due to his extreme power, and the bloodlust that he brought into every fight.

But you then you watch 20 of Ali's fights right after that, and say "Man, he was the most talented guy ever to get into the ring..." when you sit there mesmerized by Ali's footwork and combinations..... and his ability to take a punch.

It is a hard call. However, I think Ali has the edge over all of them.

Tyson was awesome and had the most potential. But, he wasn't the best ever because he never reached his full potential.

Outside of that, probably Ali.

Cassius, followed closely by Tyson. Marciano has got to be up there as well, although I'm not as well versed as Nick is I'm sure...

I have pretty good knowledge of the female body. But what I want to know is how you have such excellent knowledge about chick's bikinis? Especially if you live in a desert....

Ahh Lennox how would he have done back in the day(and without the juice)? Not very well trust me on that.

Ali was a hell of a fighter, Record: 56 Wins, 5 Loss, 37 KOs. 19 fights went to the judges.

But this is why Rocky is/was the best ever. Record: Won 49, Lost 0, 43 KO's. Only 6 fights went to the judges.

As a fighter your job is to finish the fight . That coupled with the big 0in the loss column make Rocky (in my opinion) the best of all time. That and hes Italian.

Clarence: Mama call him Clay - I call him Clay. Cassius Clay.

Clarence: Oh there they go. There they go, every time I start talkin 'bout boxing, a white man got to pull Rocky Marciano out their ass. That's their one, that's their one. Rocky Marciano. Rocky Marciano. Let me tell you something once and for all. Rocky Marciano was good, but compared to Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano ain't shit.

Also factor in 15 rounds for the old timers and 12 rounds now. It was a lot harder to take on George Foreman back when Ali did it. They had steroids back then and who knows what else.

George Foreman should be on the list. He beat Joe Frazier when Ali couldn't, beat Ken Norton after he broke Ali's jaw. 76 wins, 5 losses and 68 KOs. Not to mention he was the heavy weight champ at 45 years of age!

still nothin about Bernard Hopkins pound for pound the best fighter ever.
Three to four belts numeroius awards and still dominates his division after over 20 years.
How many other boxers can say that. He made Oscar delahoya his bitch when they fought.
Someone else give this man credit.
