Heavyweight super 6 type series, Lewis, Louis, Ali, Tyson, Foreman, Frazier. Who your two finalists and who's your winner? I'm going Ali vs Foreman with Ali winning it.

{Ed018's Note - Lewis vs Ali. Lewis wins. To big for Ali, would be able to control fight with his jab}

Lewis did have a great jab ed mate but personally I think when Ali was in his prime in the 60s his footwork and hand speed would have been too much for Lewis.

{Ed018's Note - possibly. I don’t doubt that I just think it would be hard for Ali to close the distance to land enough. But I’m not saying it’s a for gone conclusion that Lewis would win. Maybe 60/40 in my opinion}

happydays ed mate. u got an all time favourite boxer?

{Ed018's Note - that’s always a tough question. Tyson was the 1st fighter that drew me into following the sport. He was my favorite when I was growing up. Lewis is another one I like a lot, was always disappointed that him and Bowe never fought. But after going back and trying to watch old fights I’d say Hagler and Hearns are 2 of my all time favorites. Julian Jackson is up there as well.}

Love watching the Hagler vs Hearns fight myself ed. Julian Jackson was a very exciting boxer who could really bang.

{Ed018's Note - what about yourself, who are some of your all time favorites}

As a child I loved Tyson and Naz. I remember using slippers as gloves boxing my older brother I used to pretend to be naz stick my chin out and try and throw punches like him lol. Thinking back I used to love Steve Collins aswel. As I got older Mayweather became my favourite he got me really interested in the sport. Watching old fighters back I love watching Tony Zale especially his fight with Rocky Graziano. In more modern times I love watching Roy Jones Jr.

{Ed018's Note - Roy Jones was phenomenal in his prime. He should’ve retired much earlier, had nothing left to prove. There were a few fights out there I wish Mayweather would’ve had. I still wish him and Pacqiuao would’ve fought earlier.}

Yeah mate Mayweather will always get that label of cherry picking opponents and maybe he did, but a lot of great fighters could be accused of that even the great Sugar Ray Robinson who refused to give Charley Burley a shot. The fight was pacman was a shame it didn't happen earlier could have been a different fight if it had. a lot of factors were behind that fight taking so long to happen mostly the issues of drug testing and 50/ 50 split.
I would go as far as to say a prime Roy Jones is prob the greatest fighter that ever lived. He was outstanding.

I honestly don't see anyone but a clear Lewis winner from that. He's too big, too strong and too much of a chess player to lose against the other 5. Maybe you could make it a 16 man tournament world cup style to make it more interesting.

Speaking of Roy Jones, he was a heavyweight champion at one point too. Maybe we could do a smaller heavyweight competition that included heavweights under 6'0"?

I don't really want to put Roy Jones Jr into a heavyweight competition because he only had the one fight and imo he wasnt at his best at heavyweight same with Tony although he had more fights he beat afew aging fighters but anyway I'll put them in for the craic. 8 man super 8 type series, heavyweights 6ft and under who's wins and who's your finalists? David Tua, James Tony, Mike Tyson, Joe Frazier, Roy Jones Jr, Rocky Marciano, Jersey Joe Walcott, Floyd Patterson.

I'm going Tyson vs Marciano with Tyson winning.
