Greatest Boxers of Each Era

Jack Johnson was the first African-American heavy weight champion. He was one of the first big black athletes of his time, but he was very controversial. Jack deserves to be the best boxer from his era because he won a very prestigious title when Americans just weren't ready.

Jack Dempsey is a part of the International Boxing Hall of Fame. He held his title a total of 7 years, between 1919 and 1926. In those 7 years he defended his title 6 times. Jack is still to this day considered one of the greatest boxers of all time because of his aggressive style and punching power.
