Boxing 209 43 Best heavyweight boxing champs of the past 20 years 9612092 What happened? What+happened%3F Boxing It's widely believed that this era of heavyweights pales in comparison to those of past generations. Steve Bien-Aime breaks down the best of the past 20 years, taking into consideration only fights from 1989 on. - http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/images/20027/What_happened_9612092_0_0.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/images/20027/What_happened_9612092_0_0.JPG
Boxing 209 43 Best heavyweight boxing champs of the past 20 years 9612476 Evander Holyfield (42-10-2, 27 KOs) Evander+Holyfield+%2842-10-2%2C+27+KOs%29 Boxing Many will be shaking their heads at this decision, but Holyfield in his prime was the best heavyweight champion of this era. When he was at his best, he didn't lose to inferior opponents and he always gave fans full value for their money. His triology with Riddick Bowe was a classic, he avenged his loss to Michael Moorer in convincing fashion and he set a high standard for excellence during the 1990's. By the time he fought Lennox Lewis, he was already on the downside of his career. The fighter he is now mustn't be confused the champion he once was.

Boxing 209 43 Best heavyweight boxing champs of the past 20 years 9612474 Lennox Lewis (41-2-1, 32 KOs) Lennox+Lewis+%2841-2-1%2C+32+KOs%29 Boxing Many would argue that Lewis is the best of this era, citing his thrashing of a washed-up Mike Tyson and his win (wins, according to most) over Evander Holyfield. The main reason, Lewis is ranked lower is the fact that he should have been undefeated. Losing titles to Oliver McCall and seven years later to Hasim Rahman should have never happened. His reigns, though impressive, just weren't memorable. Perhaps, he's judged too harshly because he's never been in a memorable ring war and when he was at his best, there were few -- if any -- elite fighters to face.

Boxing 209 43 Best heavyweight boxing champs of the past 20 years 9612094 Mike Tyson (50-6, 44 KOs) Mike+Tyson+%2850-6%2C+44+KOs%29 Boxing He's easily the most dynamic fighter of the past 30 years. Unfortunately for Tyson, this list doesn't count his work before 1989. His upset loss to mega-underdog James "Buster" Douglas started the downfall of his career in 1990. A stint in jail also worked to erase many of the skills that made Tyson the undisputed champion. His losses to Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis showed how far he fell from his heyday.

Boxing 209 43 Best heavyweight boxing champs of the past 20 years 9612482 Wladimir Klitschko (52-3, 46 KOs) Wladimir+Klitschko+%2852-3%2C+46+KOs%29 Boxing The younger of the two fighting Klitschko brothers is the standard bearer for the active heavyweights. He's had two impressive runs as champion (2000-03 and 2006-present). His glass jaw almost ruined his career, but Wladimir has figured out how to use his long jab to keep people away. His ranking suffers because of his losses to inferior opponents and the fact that he's fighting in a mediocre division.

Boxing 209 43 Best heavyweight boxing champs of the past 20 years 9612480 Riddick Bowe (43-1, 33 KOs) Riddick+Bowe+%2843-1%2C+33+KOs%29 Boxing Bowe ended Evander Holyfield's first heavyweight championship reign in a great fight in 1992. After a few title defenses, Bowe lost the titles back to Holyfield the next year. He won a world title a few years later and stopped Holyfield in their third bout. His DQ wins over Andrew Golata signaled the end of his time as a force in the division in 1996. Bowe could have been a heavyweight champion for the ages, but it just wasn't to be.

Boxing 209 43 Best heavyweight boxing champs of the past 20 years 9612096 George Foreman (76-5, 68 KOs) George+Foreman+%2876-5%2C+68+KOs%29 Boxing When Foreman made his comeback in 1987, everybody thought he was a joke. After he took Evander Holyfield the distance in a failed attempt at the heavyweight title in 1992, no laughed anymore. Foreman's knockout of Michael Moorer in 1994 to win the heavyweight title at age 45 was one of the dramatic moments in boxing.

Boxing 209 43 Best heavyweight boxing champs of the past 20 years 9612478 Michael Moorer (52-4-1, 40 KOs) Michael+Moorer+%2852-4-1%2C+40+KOs%29 Boxing Moorer's tremendous boxing skills helped him move from light heavyweight to heavyweight champion. He beat Evander Holyfield in a close decision in 1994 for the belts. However, he promptly lost to George Foreman. Moorer would again become a champion a couple years later. The southpaw never maximized his potential, which hurt him and the division.

Boxing 209 43 Best heavyweight boxing champs of the past 20 years 9610602 Vitali Klitschko (37-2, 36 KOs) Vitali+Klitschko+%2837-2%2C+36+KOs%29 Boxing The older of the two Klitschko brothers has seen injuries and bad luck hamper his career. In the biggest fight of his career, he was leading Lennox Lewis before the 2003 title bout was stopped because of a Klitschko cut, giving Lewis the win. If there's no cut, maybe he goes the final six rounds and becomes a megastar. The following year, he started getting hurt and missed four years of action. However, he's a heavyweight champion again. His ranking is damaged by the fact he lost his heavyweight title in 2000 to the light-hitting Chris Byrd by stoppage.
