James Toney-- He's an asshole. I knew him for awhile.

Mike Tyson-- Met him at his one man show, really turned his life around great guy.

Holyfield, Lewis, W. Klitschko-- Met them at ES's funeral. Holyfield was a nice guy really really punchy. Lennox was hi bye. Wlad was astonishingly a down to earth guy.

Chris Byrd-- Real cool guy, stopped and talked boxing for 20 minutes.

And, Joe Louis's fist

Well and I guess seeing Andre Ward at the airport counts too.

Ken Norton - took a picture with him when I was 4
Sugar Ray Leonard - Meet him with my Father at 6 years old an NAACP National Convention

Recently
Robert Guerrero
Adrien Broner
Andre Berto
Karim Mayfield
Chad Dawson
Andre Ward
The last 6 fighters I met on my Birthday in Oakland last year at the Andre Ward vs Chad Dawson Fight... Those 6 fighters I met were very cool and I was able to take pictures with them all..

Ward and Guerrero were the most impressive. very personable. Ward let us take 2 pictures and was very patient with us leaving the Arena..

as far as intensity, i don't know, his training wasn't open to public.

i went and saw him 2x on his early morning runs in wailea. on his way back to his hotel, he shook a few hands..he was cordial, nice....contrary to his frequent verbal assaults to reporters.
