What state or city do you think has produced the best boxers? I think Michigan would be in the top five. Philly definitely, New York and I guess I can throw some international places like cities in Mexico. What do you guys say?

This has been argued, but Ray Robinson is from Detroit... not New York

Emmanuel Steward said that both Floyd Mayweather and James Toney frequented Detroit often in their careers despite being from outside the city.. particulary Mayweather as a youngster

it should be noted that Lennox Lewis went to another level when he ventured into Detroit and got down with Emmanuel Steward. prior to that he was a basic Euro-style fighter. I recall guys from Kronk who I knew begging me because of my size to go spar with him...
