Muhammad Ali is right up there surprised no one mentioned him.

I nominate the two physically huge, batshit crazy Nigerians: Ike Ibeabuchi and Sam Peter.

Look, if I pissed off Thomas Hearns at be worried about getting my ass kicked. If I pissed off Sonny Liston, I'd be worried about getting put in ICU.

If I pissed off Ike or Sam, I'd be worried about having pieces of my corpse eaten raw.

Sonny would have made Sam Peter seem like a choirboy.

I have mixed opinions of that 'scuffle'.

If you watch it carefully, Lewis doesnt utter a word until AFTER Bowe turns his back to him.

But Bowes language to me, suggest fear on his part.

'I thought we were cool, your not the man i thought you were'.

To me that reads 'I like you, please dont beat me up'.

See highlighted.
Very interesting choice, and I can see why you selected him. With that bald pate, he did have a Hagler-esque look about him, and of course being an inmate at Rahway probably added to the intimidation factor.

Did you see the one post fight interview where he attempted to give a speech about finding meaning in a ball he found while jogging? Pure crazy in a person with his frame is a very scary mix.

Willard, Tunney (at least the second time around) and Gibbons weren't intimidated in the least by Dempsey.

Usual Tyson Liston Foreman etc

Monzon and Ketchel for their cold sociopath/psychopathic feel

Bruce Curry, Lamotta according to JG

Louis would be intimidating as hell to fight


In a bar id want someone like Golota, crazy and unpredictable is pretty intimidating
