Thumbs up The Most Liked Fighter In Boxing Today

**** it, let's have a pre-fight thread on something other than what we're waiting for to keep the time kicking over.

A lot of fighters split fans, but some fighters are lucky enough to have pretty consistent admiration amongst fans for a whole host of different reasons. Which fighters can you think of who fans hardly ever have a bad word about and who commands the respect of the masses? What reasons can you give for this fighter being popular?

I'll start with Cotto. I can't think of another fighter today who is as universally liked as him; he's exciting, he'll fight anyone and he's respectful.

Any others?

Sugar Shane Mosley should be, but somehow isn't . Maybe the drugs thing?

Everyone loves Andrade, hard to find someone with a bad word to say about him.

I think Sergio Martinez is well on the way to that, haven't heard a bad word said about him especially post- Williams

Fanny

Cotto was who I first thought of, especially on the Brit forum.

Everyone also seems to love Nigel Benn

Mikkel Kessler is up there.

Nigel Benn from the past. In 2 years of being on the Brit forum I haven't read a bad word said about him - even some American's like him

Tomas Adamek is well respected. Fights anyone, crowd pleasing style and pretty 'humble' (not sure if that's the right word).

Yeah, we'll never know if his account of his involvement with Conte is entirely truthful. As an aside, Christina Hendricks is quite possibly the most beautiful woman on the planet. Absolutely stunning.

STFU, fanny. Everyone does like Katsidis, though.

Good shout. Very classy guy inside the ring and out.

JMM is by far my favourite fighter, but I didn't consider him as a lot of the Pacquiao huggers are always talking shit about him as he pasted Pac not once, but twice.
