Default Re: Which boxer/ which fight made you take an interest in boxing?

For me it was Lewis-Holyfield I which had a big build up here in the UK. I didn't watch the fight but I felt bad for him after reading reports of the fight. I stayed up to listen to the rematch on the radio hoping he would put it all right. Which he did. From then on I watched all Lewis's fights.

Then I started watching other fighters (Naz, Calzaghe, Nelson and Hatton) and these days I watch just about every fight I can although I try to avoid Cory Spinks fights.

I got interested in boxing during the early 80's when Detroiters Hilmer Kenty and Thomas Hearns were winning titles. My Dad was a longtime fan and gave me the history.

Yeah my dad was a huge fan of Leonard and Hearns, I started watching boxing with him probally when I was about six, and I have been a fan since then.

The great Felix "Tito" Trinidad made me a fan after I saw his fights with Yori Boy Campas and Vargas.
