Don't discount a young George Foreman! Just because he faught too long doesn't take away from his younger self in my mind. He knocked people out through there defense that's punching power man.

What about Oscar De la Hoya? I saw some of his fights and he was pretty good plus didn't he have some primary school named after him?

no way lennox lewis's straight right is better than joe louis's was!
