Ha, good for you brother. I remember, kind of though it's getting vague, what that's like. If God made anything more fun than that he kept it for himself. You know I know I'm delusional, but I think I still have one good run left in me. Whattya think T? Should I give it a shot?

Pretty sharp for your age, greg. Not that money doesn't acome in handy, and I'll tell you when it's really important is when you don't have it. But, still I think you're right. Nobody, has ever been able to convince me that we're supposed to be miserable. Have a ball, my young brother.

"What bout guys like Arguello and Hearns?"

I had an old folks moment while I was doing this list and somehow forgot Joe Louis, but edited him in at the top. These two? To me, close but no cigar.

Offensively I quite like the guys who can throw pin point combinations to body and head whilst still maintaining good balance. I won't reiterate what most people have already said by mentioning the obvious ones like Sugar Ray Robinson, but I find it hard to fault Marco Antonio Barrera when it comes to his offense. He was a two-fisted fighter, power in both hands, and he mixed it effectively to body and head - notably early on during his time as a Super Bantamweight. He was super effective on the front foot, but even when he counter-punched he was superb. Take one step back to lean away from the jab, and then he'll return with several punches in return. Offensively, Marco Antonio Barrera is among the very best in the last 20 years in my humble opinion.

Julio Cesar Chavez was even better at this than Barrera, though. He didn't have Marco's handspeed, but his accuracy was superior, and likewise, his balance was unbelievable.
