Default Who are your 5 favourite fighters, all time?

This is not just about boxing skills (my own list would look pretty different then) and watching them fight on tape or live, but a list composed of everything in the fighters history, life story, character, charisma, whatever. Of course, it's your list and if you want to weigh it 90 or a 100% in favour of the boxing that's fine, but let's see your list.

No honourable mentions, no top tens...lets see your five favourite fighters all time, say why if you like.

This is about what I expected from you though I would have put Greb at two and moved the rest down one if I was trying to predict it.

I stated, then I aired out inner thoughts on the subject ... I manipulated ... not cheated ... and you nor a jury of my peers can prove otherwise.

I bid you good day, sir!
