Seeing RJJ mentioned in the "physically gifted" thread Ive started wondering - while searching for RJJ vs Trinidad fight at the same time.

Can you think of a fighter who did things in the ring purely for the crowd? I don't mean being crowd pleasing in terms of fighting (Pacquiao for instance) but in terms of pure entertainment. To me, Roy always seemed to me as if he was trying to please the crowd first. And he paid for it - he was clowning around in the Lebedev fight etc. Although he himself must have noticed he aint what he used to be, he still tried to get the crowd cheering for him, which in a way is stupid as he doesn't have what it takes to back it up anymore.

Someone like Naseem or SRL comes to mind, but these guys were showmen but i think they were rather showcasing their ego. RJJ is the same, but I feel his story is a bit different.

So, is there any fighter in your mind who you are watching and you are like "Man, this guy is fun to watch"...? I know 99% of them fights for money...
