IMO Marciano and Frazier are a draw for first.

Armstrong beyond question. Half your list isn't swarmers, they're pressure fighters. There's a difference.

A swarmer throws nearly without regard for defence or anything else, they just keep throwing. A pressure fighter gets close and seeks and creates openings with a mind for not getting hit more often than they have to.

Most of the guys on that list weren't swarmers. Armstrong is the quintessential swarmer. Demsey has to be a close second or third. I'll add Aaron Pryor to that list.

Interesting. All this time I've always thought swarmer and pressure fighters were the same; fighters who put constant pressure to get on the inside. Looks like I made myself sound like an absolute noob.

Well, which boxers on my list are considered swarmers and pressure fighters?

Doubtless ESB members will disagree (it's ESB, after all) but I count
Rocky Marciano
Joe Frazier
Roberto Duran
Julio Cesar Chavez
Mike Tyson
as pressure fighters. They brought relentless offense, but it wasn't a windmill type of offense. It was methodical and disciplined. In the modern era, Pryor is the embodiment of a great swarmer.

P4P Armstrong, Dempsey and Duran the most vicious, JCC the most skilled, Frazier and Marciano the toughest, Tyson the strongest, Benn and Pryor maybe had the most stamina.

Armstrong is in a league of his own when it comes to swarming, see youtube. Then I'd go with Aarron Pryor
