Some people have him in their top ten P4P

Need any more reasons

Anyway I became a VERY big fan of his instead of a small fan of his skills because of it.
For Ward, Its funny how it happened actually. I always respected his skill (Ward) but you have so many fools that talk such stupid shit that i ended up talking myself into liking the guy (ignoring the SOG foolishness).

As for Broner, I always liked the kid, but people always beating him up over his antics. I actually liked him for his youthful exorbitance . . . I do not see anything wrong with being ****y, young and having fun. We need more personalities in the sport to draw in casual fans. All the talk of wanting respectful and humble champs is all good until you realize that they do not put asses in the seats (well except for Manny)

Like:
Floyd Mayweather Jr. (The best)
Andre Ward
Adrien Broner
Sergio Martinez
George Groves (Less proven than the others, but a scrappy young kid with heart who's trying to make it into the big time. I like him.)

Dislike

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (fraud, 20 pounds too heavy for his weight class, drug cheat, disrespectful of Freddy Roach, shown favoritism by the WBC, or "We Bow to Chavez," no heart, no committment. The apple fell REAL far from the tree here.)
Amir Khan (No defense, no chin, no reason to think he won't just get KTFO'd more, beats a third-rate tomato can in Molina and thinks that means he should fight Mayweather)
Saul Canelo Alvarez (No chance against Trout, but Golden Boy won't let that fight happen to protect Alvarez's "0")
Deontay Wilder (overrated as hell.)
Manny Pacquiao, although I don't mind Pac so much as I mind his fans. People who think that Pacquiao could actually beat Mayweather at this point tends to lose a little of my respect. And the aspersions against Marquez by Pac fans ("lucky punch," PEDS accusations, all that) were/are completely baseless.

Agreed. Couldn't ask for a more humble, respectful champion than Austin Trout, and people still don't care about him. Can't even get the big fight he deserves for beating Cotto because he brings no money to the table.

Boxing isn't really about being humble and respectful that much. lol.

Rather transparent pattern, isn't it? You might want to share with us what exactly you like about ****ing Dimitrenko? Or Dzinziruk?
