Re: Fighters you disliked but now admire
Khan. Still pisses me off from time to time but I became something of a fan post-Maidana.
Used to think Manny was an unthinking brawler until I started noticing the little tricks he does and respected him more.
Used to dislike Floyd until I examined his entire body of work.
Used to dislike Ward for butting Kessler and seemingly damaging him, but now he's one of my favorite fighters to watch, and I respect him as a man.
Froch wasn't someone I disliked, but he grew on me a bit more.
