Default Re: If you can bring back one fighter....

Flyweight-Fighting Harada

Bantamweight-Eder Jofre

Featherweight-Willie Pep

Super Feather-Bobby Chacon

Lightweight-Roberto Duran

Super Lightweight-Aaron Pryor

Welterweight-Sugar Ray Robinson

Middleweight-Bennie Briscoe

Light Heavy-Archie Moore

Heavyweight-Tyson

i picked Jofre and Pep cause i would like to see more of them,Harada, Chacon and Tyson for excitment.SRR cause he would look great at welter and would show how special he was by cleaning a very good WW division.Duran and Pryor were also for excitment but also i always wanted to see a Pryor-Duran fight maybe that could happen.Briscoe i would like to see him win a world title and make the money he deserved.and finally Moore cause i would like to see him playing his tricks against the best from 175 up to HW.

Barney Ross
Rocky Marciano as a Heavyweight, that way when he beats the likes of Sam Peter, people will call him a true heavyweight lol.
Middleweight Harry Greb, that way we not only get footage, but in COLOR.
Of couse Walker is a close 2nd.
Carman and Fullmer are close also in this regard.
Armstrong
George Dixon

Let`s take one fighter from each of the original 8 weight classes, and you have the option of adding two weight divisions that are among those that were recently introduced in the last twenty years. I`ll start first:


Flyweight: Fighting Harada

Bantamweight: Alfonso Zamora

Featherweight: Danny Lopez

Jr.Lightweight: Bobby Chacon

Lightweight: Ike Williams

Welterweight: Carmen Basilio

Jr.Middleweight: Eugene "Cyclone" Hart

Middleweight: Eduardo Lausse

Lightheavyweight: Matthew Saad Muhammad

Heavyweight: Jerry Quarry
HW...Such a pathetic division, it probably needs a charismatic personality like Ali or maybe Tyson...I'd rather pick others but this is what the HW division needs

Cruiser...Qawi

LHW MS Muhammad

SMW...Chris Eubank...Simply the best!

MW...Bennie Briscoe

JMW...Terry Norris

WW...SRR

LWW...Aaron Pryor

LW....Ismael Laguna

SFW...Azumah Nelson

FW...Sal Sanchez

SBW...Bazooka Gomez

BW...Zarate

SFly...Galaxy

Fly...Horaciio Enrique Accavallo

Sam Langford. Someone recently posted a link to some footage on him that makes me think he could compete today with very little change to his style.

Harry Greb. C'mon, let's see some footage of this all time resume holder.

Jack Dempsey. It's put up or shut up. Is he afraid of black people, or was it the times?
