Default Most intimidating faces / stare downs in boxing history?

What are they?

My vote goes to Mike Tyson, Sonny Liston and the Klitchko bros. They all have awesome stare downs and intimidation.

Jack Dempsey was very intimidating Gene Tunney was quoted saying the night before he fought Dempsey he woke up in bed shaking because he was so afraid.Marvin Hagler was intimidating too. Joe Frazier aswell enough to intimidate Big George...

Lioyd Honeyghan Vs Johnny Bumphus was memorable also

Nigel Benn in his early Dark Destroyer days chilled a few opponents hearts

Going slightly off subject,but if I ever knew a man was beat during the staredown at the weigh in,it was Hatton v Floyd.
And I still was poisoned with a mystery gas from the bookies for 5 mins at 8pm on fight night and pissed away 200 on Hatton at 3/1.
Never ever did I feel like I was betting on a loser like I did that night.Even as the girl gave me my slip the gas was wearing off and I thought,"You ****ing idiot!"
