1. Frazier- Great heart!, Great determination, and that beautiful left hook.
2. Ali- Speaks for itself.
2. Marco Antonio Barrera- Hes my hero!..What he did to the Prince..Gold!..And he reminds me of a throwback..A true boxer-puncher.
3. DLH- He was the man!..Fought everyone, always put a great show and made his mark at both LW and WW ( which was his bread and butter.)
4. Holyfield- The real deal!..also speaks for itself. What could'nt Evander do?
5. Hearns- Just love the guy, also dug his style and in my opinion the hardest hitting WW of all time ( Im sure ill catch some **** for that.) Tommy was the total package.
First your 5 favorite is really your 6 favorite...why not just call it that? or even make it 10?

While you normally cannot debate a favorites list, this proves to be the exception-something are you are becoming quickly.

YOU cannot be a REAL phan of both FRAZIER and ali.....It is comprable to rooting for the Allies and the axis? God and satan, EAGLES and cowboys, Red Sox and Yankees...It cannot be be done, and is not sllowed.....If you really love Frazier you cannot be an Ali fan, a house divided against itself cannot stand!

Unless I'm missing something, this is disrespectful and warrants an apology.
