Literally 100s mate! I suppose the biggest names would be:

Oscar de la Hoya, Jermain Taylor, Thomas Hearns, Danny Green, Paul Briggs, Jeff Fenech, Kostya Tszyu, Joey Gamache, Eddie Mustapha Muhammad, James "Bonecrusher" Smith, Joe Bugner, Kassim Ouma, Howard Eastman, Daniel Edouard, Jorge Castro, Livingstone Bramble, Jeff Mayweather, Mike McCallum, and Sultan Ibragimov.

I see my mate Dom DeVanna all the time.
See Danny Green, Willie Kickett & all the other west aussie boys from time to time.
Jeff Fenech was the best person to meet tho.

Vic Darchinyan: Nearly flattened him at Starcity one night. Was walking along, nearly stood on him. I was shocked at how small he is in real life (since I am 6"5 and 100+ KGs). Had a quick chat to him, was a nice bloke although hard to understand.

A couple back in the early 90s, Cassius Craig Peterson the night he beat Jimmy Thunder for the Australian Heavyweight Title at Festival Hall, must've been the only local barracking for him. Jason Ben Hall also and the only current one would be Mark De Mori.
A couple I like to meet for a chat would be Scotty Brouwer and Cliff Samardin.

Cliff Samardin- now there was a guy if he'd had the backing could really have gone places.Kinda reminds me of where Willie Kickett is now.

Yeah mate, he saw him fight a couple of times and was blown away by what I saw, easily in a different league. Remained undefeated and his last fight was his US debut but I don't know what happened after that.

And agree with the comparison to Willie K, the first time I saw him instantly thought of Cliff.

At least it's staged a bonafide world title fight before. Plenty of cities haven't done that.

Any interesting stories/conversations? Anyone who stuck out as a bit of a character?

Tommy Hearns didn't understand my accent when I asked him for an autograph. "Wha you saaaay man?" I was like "Can...I ....have....an...autograph....please....Tommy?" He said: "Oh. I thought youse was making fun o me." I said: "I'm not that stupid"!

Mike McCallum was an utter ****ing arsehole. Wanted me to pay him $100 for an autograph. I'd say that when I was 12 and a big Mike McCallum fan I'd have been one of the .0025% of people in Australia who knew who he was. Disappointing.

Had a brilliant chat with Joey Gamache in Gleason's Gym in NY. He's punchy though, poor bloke.

Livingstone Bramble was all class. He said: "One of the hardest hitters I've ever faced was Shannan Taylor. That kid could REALLY bang."

Fenech and Green were all class when I met them. Went out of their way. Choc was reserved, but nice enough.

Eddie Mustapha Muhammad is the man. Loud and very energetic.
