So many great champions to choose from and no doubt my list will change but I would have
1. Les Darcy (was a national hero).
2. Jimmy Carruthers (our first universally recognised boxing World Champion).
3. Lionel Rose
4. Jeff Fenech
Any of these fighters could be replaced by the likes of Young Griffo, Vic Patrick, Tommy Burns, Ron Richards, Dave Sands etc.
..apart from trying to squeak Kostya Tsyzu in there somewhere...it's hard to dissagree with that list..
