    @Fortis I hope your British...

    I like the slicksters reminds me of guys with the abilities that the Kung fu guys had in the movies I idolized as a child.

    George Benton, Mike McCallum, Ezzard Charles, Archie Moore, Alexis Arguello.
    The Michigan crab guys. Mayweathers and Toney. The Cubans Napoles, Gavilan, Ramos, Rodriguez, Legra, Rigo.
    I also have a soft spot for the Japanese and East Asian boxing scene. One of my goals is to travel around Japan and watch a bunch of local events around the country. From Japan my favorite boxers are Onizuka, Ioka, and I am very interested in Daigo Higa. I haven't seen too much footage but I am also stylistically a big fan of Hiroyuki Ebihara.

    There are lots of less accomplished guys I liked watching like Boom Boom, Vinnie Paz, Micky Ward, and a bunch of others that aren't "great," but I enjoy watching them.

    I love a lot of guys and generally like all fighters but Ali is just a little bit above everyone else.

    Ricardo Lopez is my number 1 favorite. Perfectionist and a master boxer. Everything is done correctly and was an exciting fighter.

    Light's Out has been my favorite for years now, but some of his best adversaries are now also my favorites (RJJ/McCallum).
