D-MARV
10. Joe Louis
9. Bernard Hopkins
8. Roberto Duran
7. Mike Tyson
6. Pernell Whitaker


5. Willie Pep- No doubt, one of the greatest boxers of all time, Willie Pep compiled a record that consisted of 242 fights over the span of 26 years. Known for his defense, Pep was a fighter that was way before his time. Modern fighters like Whitaker have recycled a lot of Pep’s defensive moves. Pep once won a round without throwing a meaniful punch. That tells you a lot about his defense.

Favorite Fight: Pep-Saddler II


4. Paul Williams- A fighter, who I feel hasn’t even reached his prime yet, will be force for years to come. The non-stop punching machine possesses a rear combination of height, speed, and stamina. Williams is a nightmare for any fighter who stands in font of him. Already a two-division champion in his young career, Williams has potential to do something very special.

Favorite Fight: Williams-Quintana 1

3. Felix Trinidad- “Tito” is one of the greatest Puerto Rican fighters of all time. Trinidad dominated his opponents by overwhelming them with his great power and quick hands. Trinidad had the heart of a champion which he showed by getting up off the mat in numerous fights only to KO his opponent. One of the great fighters of his era, Trinidad would have been a force in any era at 147.

Favorite Fight: Trinidad-Vargas

2. Roy Jones Jr.- No other fighter over the last twenty years has brought as much ability and god given talent to the table as Roy Jones Jr. Roy’s flashy style made him popular figure within the sport. HBO’s poster boy throughout the 90s and early 2000s put together an elite career. Roy held titles at 4 different weight classes ranging from middleweight all the way up to heavyweight. Don’t let the recent version of Roy fool you. A “prime” Roy would have been trouble for any fighter in any era.

Favorite Fight: Jones Jr.- Ruiz

1. Muhammad Ali- In my opinion, the greatest heavyweight of all time and arguably the greatest boxer of all time hands down. For many years and even today, Ali has been one of the faces of the sport worldwide. Ali took on and defeated every great fighter during his era. Ali possessed amazing hand speed, supreme footwork, and had incredible defense. Not known for being a power puncher, Ali had the type of power that would wear his opponent down over the long haul. Ali was truly one of the all time greats of the sport.

Favorite Fight: Ali-Foreman

I will have to put my list up there. Suffice to say none of your top 5 are the same as mine Marv.
Romulus9
It's very difficult to rank my 10, so I'll just list them. I'm also only going to stick to guys from my lifespan, although I love watching the guys who built the sport decades ago.


  • George Foreman - A man with two amazing careers, separated by ten years. We all watched as his impossible dream became reality and that night is not only my favorite night in boxing history, it's my favorite night as a sports fan.

    Favorite Fight: Foreman KO 10 Michael Moorer

  • Vinny Pazienza - Half-crazy, reinvented himself several times over, always entertaining. The video of him working out in the halo is the stuff of legend and coming back to do all he did AFTER the car wreck and broken neck is a miracle.

    Favorite Fight: Pazienza TKO 12 Gilbert Dele

  • Johnny Tapia - Loved to watch the guy fight. Life has never dealt him a good hand and, despite his personal problems, he always fights back. If nothing else, he and another guy I really liked but didn't make the top 10, Danny Romero, gave us all a night that we, and the sport, desperately needed in July 1997 (after 53 weeks of black eyes for the sport). Look for a nice piece on that in the next few days.

    Favorite Fight: Tapia UD 12 Danny Romero

  • Marco Antonio Barrera - Warrior. How many classics has this guy given us? He's fought every major opponent and has reached legendary status in doing so. Plus, he destroyed the career of one of the biggest douchebags that planet Earth has ever seen. I enjoyed it very much. I may go into the archive and watch that DVD tonight.

    Favorite Fight: Barrera UD 12 Naseem Hamed

  • Arturo Gatti - How do you pick a favorite for Gatti? What a career. This guy's career DVD set alone could bring a whole new crop of fans to the world of boxing. Blood and guts, win or lose, with Arturo you knew that he'd leave everything he had in the ring. Gatti-Ward I is an all-time classic, one of the best ever, but I went with a Gatti win for my favorite.

    Favorite Fight: Gatti KO 6 Wilson Rodriguez

  • Roy Jones Jr. - Never ducked anyone but plenty ducked him. Michalczewski was an absolute coward. So was Nigel Benn. In his prime, there has never been anyone BETTER. Tremendously gifted fighter and probably has the greatest margin of victory over his opposition of any champion in ages. Oh yeah, he won a heavyweight championship too.

    Favorite Fight: Jones Jr. KO 1 Montell Griffin

  • Bernard Hopkins - Legend. Hammered Trinidad. Enough said.

    Favorite Fight: Hopkins TKO 12 Felix Trinidad

  • Ray Mancini - The prelude to Gatti. An underappreciated warrior, which is saying something because he is somewhat appreciated.

    Favorite Fight: Mancini screwed on a SD vs. Hector Camacho

  • Roberto Duran - Top 5 pound-for-pound EVER. Best lightweight in the history of the sport, which may be the most richly talented group through the years. Chavez, Benny Leonard, Armstrong, Whitaker, etc. From the legendary battles with champions of days gone by to the performances on USA Tuesday Night Fights at Casino Magic against bums from the midwest who needed their overmatched mouths shut.

    Favorite Fight: Duran SD 12 Iran Barkley

  • Marvin Hagler - Don't even get me started on the Leonard fight. Champion for 7 years. Incredible dedication and work ethic. Blue collar guy relatable to the masses. Never appreciated to the degree he should have been, even today. Best chin in the history of boxing.

    Favorite Fight: Hagler KO 11 John Mugabi
Lil-lightsout
No particular order, and just off the top of my head of fighters I really liked. I am sure I am forgetting some.

Pernell Whitaker- favorite fight- Whitaker-Jose Luis Ramirez II
Arturo Gatti- favorite fight- Gatti-Gabriel Rueles
Riddick Bowe-favorite fight-Bowe-Jorge Luis Gonzalez
Michael Moorer-favorite fight-Moorer-Bert Cooper
Michael Carbajal-favorite fight-Carbajal-Humberto Gonzalez I
Meldrick Taylor-favorite fight-Taylor-Aaron Davis
Roy Jones-favorite fight-Jones-Percy Harris(though there are a few others I could pick)
Shane Mosley-favorite fight-Mosley-Margarito
Ray Leonard-favorite fight-Leonard-Marvin Hagler
JAMES TONEY-favorite fight- TONEY-Michael Nunn or TONEY-Iran Barkley

DM did not duck Roy. He was the true lineal champion & Roy would not fight him outside America. He was worse than any Eurofighter with that attitude.

I also absolutely disagree that there has never been anyone better than Roy in his prime. You could not classify him as the best ever in any of his divisions. The guy whilst talented is another HBO sham perpetrated on the public.

1)Sugar Ray Robinson and Archie Moore---I can't decide who I like more..

Honorable mention---Muhammad Ali,Lennox Lewis,Larry Holmes,Tommy Hearns


As far as my favorite fights for these guys,there is no way for me to pick only one..
The Original MrFactor
Top ten favorite fighters

1. Mike Tyson - was knocking people out like no other during the 80's. A guy who represented my generation.

2. Evander Holyfield - Great determonation. A guy who's gonna win by determination alone.

3. Julio Caesar Chavez - The little engine that could. He'd just keep choppin away til he won...

4. Lennox Lewis - Hated him originally, but he really grew on me. Great fighter and appears to be great outside the ring as well. A man to be really respected. Hugely underappreciated.

5. Larry Holmes - talk about underappreciated... One of the top 4 greats to ever lace them up. Great technician. Greatest Jab in the history of the sport.

6. Antonio Margarito - I know I'll get alot of shit because of this one. No matter what you say about the guy, he's never been in a boring fight. Entertaining, blood and guts guy. Too bad his victories are tainted by plaster.

7. James TONEY - one of the funniest men in the sport. Not to mention a great fighter.

8. Roy Jones Jr. - Flashy, fast and talked almost as fast as he fought. I think he stayed in the game too long...

9. Ali - nothing needs to be said about this one.

10. Sugar Ray Leonard - another no brainer...

Honorable mention for obvious reasons:

Marving Hagler, Terry Norris, Juan Manuel Marquez, Miguel Cotto, Shane Mosley, Mike McCallum, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Thomas Hearns, Roberto Duran, Iran Barkley, Pernell Whittaker, Joe Calzaghe, bernard Hopkins...

There are many guys I can think of who I think were better in their prime..So Romulus you think that Roy is one of the best P4P ever(top 5-10)??

Benny Leonard was better in his prime,to name one guy..
King Eugene
I'll just name my favorite fighters in my time. I'm only 25

10. Winky Wright - To some he is boring but in the earlier part of his career he use to bring the fight to you. Straight forward right in your chest with his shell defense. The way he frustrated fighters was like no other (except BHop).

Favorite fight: Wright vs. Trinidad

9. Miguel Cotto - This guy has some great skills. To some I think they are very underrated. He was out boxing Margarito beautifully until being stopped. I have a new respect for that dude. I still think he cheated his way out of the Zab fight with all the intentional low blows after being rocked.

Favorite Fight: Cotto vs. Corley

8. Sweat Pea - You cant speak defense without speaking this guys name. He was so elusive and really put on a show when he was in the ring. I hate he talks like he got a lot of spit in his mouth now but he was very entertaining to watch and should have gotten the knob over JCC

Favorite Fight: Whitaker vs. Roger Mayweather

7. Zab "Super" Judah - Probably one of the most gifted fighters ever but dumbest at the same time. His hood mentality messed ruined his career if you ask me. He's an example of Dave Chapelle's "when keeping it real goes wrong." Sometimes you just have to fake the funk.

Favorite Fight: Judah vs. Spinks II

6. Floyd Mayweather - Its like watching a butterfly blossom when this dude lets his hands go. Thats how beautiful it is when watching him fight. He is so damn smart and calm in the ring. His defense is like no other especially when he starts rolling that shoulder. After his move up from 135 he became a money fighter which I dont blame him for but I'd rather see him continue to fight stiffer competition.

Favorite Fight: Mayweather vs. N'Dou from South Africa

5. Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield - I doubt I will ever see another fighter like Evander. The heart he had can rarely be found in any modern fighter if any at all. The man fought wars in the ring. He was never the biggest, rarely the fastest but almost always the most skilled. After seeing Evander vs. Riddick I had a brand new respect for the guy. I cant remember after which fight it was but he told the broadcaster in the post fight interview that after he(Evander) had been wobbled he had the guy right where he wanted him. Now what kind of shit is that...pure heart and determination...or a stupid MF but I'm a go with pure heart and determination.

Favorite Fight: Too many to name but I'll just put Bowe II for now.

4. Mike "Kid Dynamite" Tyson - Straight man child. He was the first Heavyweight "I" seen with my own eyes clean out a whole heavyweight division. Watching him is what really got me into boxing. His explosive crowd pleasing style and his whole "quite before the storm" demeanor was scary. With Cus this dude was an animal.

Favorite Fight: Tyson vs. Marvin Fraizer

3. Tommy "The Hitman" Hearns - I really cant put my finger on it but I just really liked watching this cat. Everytime he stepped in the ring you knew you where going to see a fight. He always went out on his shield and left everything in the ring. You gotta respect that. He was apart of one of my all time favorite fights which was Hagler vs. Hearns.

Favorite Fight: Hearns vs. Duran

2. Benard "The Executioner" Hopkins - You talking about a man that defies all odds. Every fight he was the underdog in he came out on top and in high fashion(except Calzaghe). His skill sets are so high that he's managed to stay an elite fighter in his 40's. He is the perfect example of an old school fighter. Like a lot of others he went from the ground up and has a remarkable story to tell (watch Beyond The Glory: Bernard Hopkins). If I could have anybodies style it would be his and James Toney's second.

Favorite Fight: Hopkins vs. Tarver

1. Roy Fn Jones Jr. - He turned me into a hardcore fan. His God given abilities are like no other and he took full advantage of all of them. He always dazzled the crowd with his performances. He dominated fighters like never before. He made the great James Toney look average. Roy is fucking phenomenal! He's an ATG in my book! In his prime he was damn near unstoppable and one of the greatest entertainers in the ring.

Favorite Fight: Too Damn Many to name!

Honorable Mentions: James Toney (his fight with Iran Barkley made me a fan), Emanuel Augustus, Sugar Ray Leonard, ODLH, Marvin Hagler, KT, and Lennox Lewis.

Yeah,I know..I had to get McCallum in there too..I was about to take Ward off but decided not to..If I had to get rid of someone,I guess it'd be Ward..

I've also got to add Roy to my list..He also made me like boxing more..I'm gonna be 25 myself next month..I really like old schoolers as you guys know but I have a really diverse list I think..Lots of different time periods..

I'm glad Holy made it on your list too 3King3..I was kinda thrown off why you saying Holy was rarely the fastest in his fights..I disagree with that..Holy was actually really fast,especially at cruiserweight and his beginning part of his heavyweight career..I think he remained pretty fast but lost quite a bit of speed once he got to 220 lbs..

I would not disagree with that whatsoever.
BigG
Bernard Hopkins: Love his ring smarts, skills, story, discipline, and attitude. He is my idol in Boxing.
Best Fight: TKO 12 Felix Trinidad: Destruction of a PRIME Trinidad. This was one of the best performances of the decade.

Mike Tyson: He had issues but his ferocity, raw talent, power/speed drew me to the Sport.
Best Fight: KO 1 Michael Spinks: Spinks was 31-0 (21 KOs) and got blasted in 91 seconds.

Pernell Whitaker: My favorite style. He was never the hardest puncher but won fights on pure skill.
Best Fight: D 12 Julio Cesar Chavez: Robbed off a win in a great fight. The slickest boxer at the time vs. the best pressure at the time.

Terry Norris: Ice cold killer.....
Best Fight: WUD 12 Sugar Ray Leonard: Gives beatdown to legend.

Erik Morales: He was involved in many great fights. He was cocky but was a warrior with great skills.
Best Fight: WUD 12 Manny Pacquiao: Clearly beats Pacquia. I really thought he was going to lose that fight.

Fernando Montiel : I enjoy his fighting style. He's a little guy and has great speed, skill, power.
Best Fight: KO 4 Martin Castillo: Blows out former Champion.

Joe Louis: Quiet, humble demeanor and a destroyer in the ring.
Best Fight: KO 1 Max Schmelling: So brutal.

Diego Corrales: Loved watching him fight his wins over Castillo, Casamayor, and Freitas were brilliant.
Best Fight: TKO 10 Jose Luis Castillo: Best fight ever.

Larry Holmes: Reminds me of Bernard Hopkins alot. Tremendous skills and IMO would have beaten a prime Ali and Lennox Lewis.
Best Fight: WSD 15 Ken Norton: He clearly won this.

Zab Judah: He is a knucklehead but whatever I he is fun to watch and I like his style.
Best Fight: TKO 9 Cory Spinks: DESTROYS Cory Spinks and wins Undisputed Welterweight Title.

Honorable mention: Miguel Cotto, Julio Cesar Chavez, Willie Pep, Rafael Marquez, Juan Manuel Marquez, Joe Frazier, Floyd Mayweather Jr, Gerry Penalosa, Roy Jones Jr.

thanks Jonny, I did not know that about Mickey Ward and the pigs, googled it just then, interesting.

Maybe the hand problems is why he loved that liver shot so much, a lot softer than the head lol.
Brad
my favourites, not neccesarily the most skilled, but no doubt my favourites, and like some others i'm only choosing from fighters that i've watched live in my lifetime.

1. Anthony Mundine

LMAO, sorry, I thought that would be a funny one. My favourites:

1. Mike Tyson
2. Bernard Hopkins
3. Roy Jones
4. Shane Mosley
5. Paul Williams
6. Manny Pacquiao
7. Diego Corrales
8. Israel Vazquez
9. Vic Darchinyan
10. Evander Holyfield

Looking at my list I don't even know if I placed everyone in a particular order, they are all my favourites and i'd enjoy watching a fight from my #10 fighter just as much as my #1 fighter (in there primes)

Honourable mention: Yuriorkis Gamboa, Juanma Lopez, Michael Katsidis, Zab Judah, Emmanuel Augustus, Ricardo Mayorga and Kostya Tszyu
Brad
Holyfield is on my list but the funny thing is that I only started liking him in '03 when he fought and lost to James Toney. Ever since that fight i've been a fan and I have his career collection so have done a lot of catching up witnessing why this guy is a Hall of Fame great fighter. I think the Mike Tyson fights had me hating on Holyfield for a very long time, took 6 years to get over it lol.

Fuck, I forgot to make a spot on my list for James Toney, another one of my favourites!

I think what he meant to say was that Roy, physically, was one of the most gifted fighters in the history of the sport. That part, at least, is true. And I use that sentence definitively in the past tense.

Roy is now getting exposed for the flip-side of that coin, being that he was never fundamentally sound, and relied soley on those physical gifts. Now that they have eroded, so too has Roy's career, and slowly, his respect in the game.

But at the end of the day, when it's all said and done, Roy WAS something special, and would be a threat in any era he fought in.

Damn,good thinking man..This might be why he was in my opinion,one of the best liver punchers..If Ward wanted the liver shot,he somehow always got it..He was deadly accurate with that punch..In my opinion,the most accurate to the liver..Debatable,but this is my opinion..It is very unforunate about the thing with the cops..He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and paid for it for basically his whole career..

Im a fan of SRR and there's no doubt he's the GOAT but i couldn't add him to my top 10 favorite list because i didn't have the privalage of growing up watching him during his prime. All i've seen of him has been film footage that has been edited to pieces.

Here's my top 10.....

1.Chavez
2. Duran
3.Sanchez
4.Wilfredo Gomez
5.Hagler
6.Sal Sanchez
7.Morales

Dont know if any of you guys knew but ESPN Classics plays classic fights on Thursday nights starting at 8pm Eastern Time. They usually show like two or three. Last night they showed Roberto Duran vs. Ken Bucannon. So if you ever want to check out some old school fights tune in or DVR it.

ESPN classic has been showing the same fights for the last 10 years and most of the time the fights are edited down.

I remember there being a thread way back in the BT days about espn showing more rare fights(which we know they have)instead of the same old fights all the time.
