Historical rankings are a fool’s errand unless one prescribes a strict set of criteria to base the rankings on. The absence of such is exactly why historical rankings of the 10 greatest heavyweight boxing champions vary so widely from list to list, even among notable writers and recognized historians.
To that end, Bleacher Report offers a ranking of the 10 most accomplished heavyweight champions in boxing history. No thought has been given to who would defeat who in presumed fantasy fights, and special emphasis has been placed on title bout wins, length of championship reign and number of consecutive defenses.
