Well if I was pointing at my avatar it would be 'Amanda, available for hardcore shoots, private dances and escorts' but it's gotta be the 'Motor City Cobra' for me.

buck smith. he was certainly not great, but i loved his attitude.

and you just gotta love a guy who had no coach and basically taught himself how to box.

Whitaker is known for his defense, and rightfully so. He also had a good jab, body attack, and high punch output.

Chavez had one of the best offenses ever. I love to watch his combinations, the way he cuts off the ring, and even the way he would break clinches.

Mike McCallum is the only person that I can trully say was good at everything.

James Toney may be the best counterpuncher I have ever seen.

Sorry that I could not give just one name. If pressed, I would have to say Whitaker; from my generation.
