Muhammad Ali goes down in the 15th round to a left hook from world heavyweight champion Joe Frazier who kept the title with an unanimous points win at Madison Square Garden in March 1971. Cameramen are crowded round the ring

We rank the world's all-time greatest heavyweight champions

(Records are listed as wins, losses and draws)

1. Joe Louis (66-3-0, champion from 1937-48)

2. Gene Tunney (65-1-1, champion from 1926-28)

3. Muhammad Ali (56-5-0, champion from 1964-67; 1974-78; 1978)

4. Jack Johnson (55-11-7, champion from 1908-15)

5. George Foreman (76-5-0, champion from 1973-74; 1994-95)

6. Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, champion from 1990-92; 1993-94; 1996-99; 2000)

7. Joe Frazier (32-4-1, champion from 1968-73)

8. Jack Dempsey (61-6-9, champion from 1919-26)

9. Rocky Marciano (49-0-0, champion from 1952-55)

10. Max Schmeling (56-10-4, champion 1930-32)

Sorry, but the Klitschko brothers, Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson aren't good enough to make our top 10.
