Default Legitimately tough boxers today?

I know the ordinary person might think all boxers, because of the nature of the sport are "tough" or "hard" men.

However, maybe I'm wrong but the likes of Malignaggi, Tim Bradley, Amir Khan, David Haye and even Tyson Fury don't strike me as guys who are legitimately tough. Now that's not a bad thing, many people aren't by nature.

Contrast that to the likes of Vitali Klitschko, Rigondeaux, JMM, even Pacquiao deep down and Carl Froch to an extent strike me as guys who know they are tough.

Thoughts on this and who you think is and isn't tough?

ps - any one of them would kick my ass anyway

all are tough - any boxer worth talking about on this site has survived & won possibly hundreds of violent encounters with other men, whether on the street, amateurs or pros

All are tough, you mentioned Malignaggi doesn't strike you as tough but the guy with little power went 12 rounds with Cotto despite a broken jaw.
