Ali is not the greatest of all time he's self proclaimed the greatest but the honors of all time greatest goes to Robinson handsdown.

I am curious as to what makes you guys be a fan of certain figthers, aside from their level of entertainment. For example, me I am usually a fan of guys who finish strong. Every fighter who competes at the top level is in shape but I am talking about guys who are in exceptional condition, fighters who look about the same conditioning wise in the 9th and 10th as they did in the 1st, while the other fighter is huffing and puffing. Most of my favourite fighters of the moment are guys with great stamina.

I always liked Castillo, strong finisher, Lovemore N'Dou, Hopkins, Juan Manuel Marquez ( he finished stronger than the beast Manny Paquiao), Israel Vasquez, Antonio Margarito and Kelly Pavlik seems to have great cardio. So what physical attribute do you look for in your favourite fighters?

I see a lot of people are forgetting that he said favorite boxers not greatest boxers.
Besides that my favorites are in no particular order:

1. Roy Jones Jr. (my favorite of all times)
2. Zab Judah (I just like watching him fight...he is so damn fast)
3. Mike Tyson (a dang beast, I think he had the best prime of any heavyweight. Remember thats my opinion)
4. Muhammad Ali (One of the greatest...should have stopped earlier in his career like Jones should now)
5. Floyd Mayweather Jr. (cant seem to find a flaw in his game)
6. Sugar Ray Leonard (He a long with Roy has the fastest hands in the game ever)
7. Tommy Hearns (Mutha freaking HITMAN...nuff said.)
8. Winky Wright (Love his defense...just hate nobody with a name wants to fight him)
9. Sweat Pea Whitaker (hardest man I seen to be hit. But obviously somebody got to his ass. Listen to him talk now.)
10. Shane Mosley (I was an instant fan after I seen him whoop Oscar. But he should have never tried Winky.)

And the one I HATE the hell out of is SORRY ASS ANTONIO TARVER
