Is Wladimir Klitschko the best heavyweight Champion ever?

Heavyweight boxing is certainly not what it used to be. The best boxing is now a few select guys who weigh about as much as the average high school junior. The days of Tyson, Holyfield, and Lewis are long gone, but don't tell that to Wladimir Klitschko, who for the last 5 years, has been defending his heavywelt belt, and has now laid down 50 KO's in his career with the shellacking...
