Bernard Hopkins. I used to despise him, and was happy as ever when he had the JT decision go against him. But his schooling of Tarver (coupled with the respect I'd always had for him), began switching me.

Mine was Chis Eubank(s).

I really disliked this guy due to his attitude and often be´ng scrappy against guys with half his abilities. But Later I started to appreciate him more and even became a fan.

Loved his Benn fights, and didn't know who to root for when they fought for the 2nd time.

Lennox Lewis. I hated that guy after the Vitaliy fight for obvious reasons. But later I started rewatching that fight again and saw how skillful this guy is. After that fight i rewatched other fights and started appreciate how great he was.

Mine would be the same but the other way round, I disliked Vitali due to the hate Lewis got for that, but both Vladimir and Vitali have grown on me especially Vladimir

Calzaghe, disliked him for a long time, but then i saw this interview with him, he seemed so calm, down to earth and was a nice guy.

Jermain Taylor, loved him after the super six 360 degreese episodes.

Librado Andrade for been the most down to earth boxer i've experienced

Froch, i really loved the little grin on his face where is was knocked down by Jermain Taylor. It was so really cool..

Bradley- Never really thought too much of the guy, but I have come to greatly appreciate his attitude toward boxing.

For whatever reason I never like Lennox when he was boxing, always rooted against him, but have come to appreciate his greatness

Couldn't really be a fan of Pac either, after he beat MAB and for the fickle reason of how overrated 'I thought' he became by his fans and by EA Sports in FN R3 as I struggled to beat Pac with a welter/middle DLH whenever I played against him with friends/bros. Wanted Oscar to beat him, but after Pac annihilated him and smashed Hatton couldn't deny he really was a legendary ATG and couldn;t help but become a fan and admirer of what he;s been able to do

Holyfield.

The fact that he pretty much fought everyone and held his own against the best.

Whoever would fight Muhammed Ali when I was a kid.

Joe Frazier was my main guy.
