Top picks For entertainment value predicated uipon skill...they are all fighters who "fought"..they made/make boxing not just a sport, but an event. Never watched Robinson "live"...but what a phenom on tape. Honorable mention to Joe Frazier, Ray Mancini, Jorge Piaz, Gatti, Ward and Naz..great fights and shows..jsut not the raw talent of the others...
