Other favourites in the set include Rocky Marciano who was the only heavyweight champ to retire without a single defeat, Floyd Patterson who was the youngest heavyweight champion, ‘Sonny’ Liston, British boxer Henry Cooper, the greatest boxer Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, London born Frank Bruno and Evander Holyfield.
