Jose Napoles. Loved the rhythm and the smoothness of it all. It just seemed to...flow I guess.

I got sick of watching Toney taking off 2:30 of a round, landing a couple flurries and having everyone proclaim his greatness.

Used to worship the guy, but too many shitty, boring performances.

Granted he has more tricks than a Sunday hooker.

No one moved or boxed quite like Hearns. The way he let his hands go, switching head to body, lining up the right hands; sharp skills, explosive power. Pure artistic expression; right up there with Coltrane and Hendrix, et al. Force of Nature.
His shorts just looked so stupid though, especially with his long skinny legs. The same goes for Buchanen and some of these other old fighters. NO, I'm not saying the superlong, baggy ones like Lewis wore were better, not at all. At least they wore the protector low enough, so it didnt make the torso look all squished. Ideally, you want a knee length short with a protector worn low enough to not be visible over the wasitband.

I thought the shorts highlighted his style and physique and made him look sophisticated and dangerous in a way, like some kind of mythic afro-greek warrior. But that's just me
