Floyd Mayweather Jr. - he is just so damn good
Odlanier Solis - for some reason I like this guy, though his lack of discipline makes it hard for me to be his fan, i can understand him though

There. That wasn't so bad was it?

Mine rarely changes, and I dont see it changing for a long time.

Spots 11 through 20 would be more interesting because that changes more often....

I dont even think I have ten

Bruno is definite. I have been fans of the following

Valero
Pascal
Haye
Froch
Hatton

These days I just follow the underdog although when I'm watching a fight as an event (in a pub, with mates round, at the fight) I do get caught up in home pride so I'll be rooting for Froch against Kessler when I go to watch the fight live.

I am able to read & yes, it is laughable to state Floyd is the most skilled boxer of all time.

Indeed. He possessed all the intangibles but was never given the chance to make his mark as one of the best ever to lace 'em up.

Alexis Arguello
Marvin Hagler
Matthew Saad Muhammad
Mando Ramos
Izzy Vasquez
Rafael Herrera (new addition)
