Default If Given The Task of Creating An All Time Boxing Team, With One Boxer From Each Weight Class...

How would you list run? Feel free to choose from across eras based on h2h potential for the most part. This runs from straw to heavy, with one boxer from each class, and feel free to select one runner up if you prefer.

When I was a kid me and my best friends used to play this exact game with Title Bout card game. We'd take it in turns to have first picks at each weight class... Having a sort of draft system is what makes it interesting... Sometimes a clever 4th pick can come in top of you get the man with the right style etc...

In the main 8

Ali
Charles
Greb
Robinson
Duran
Saddler
Jofre
Wilde

In the jr divisions

154 McCallum
140 Canzoneri
130 Chavez
122 Gomez
115 Galaxy

Saddler

Saddler over a prime willie pep? interesting. saddler suffered quite a few losses in his prime. guys like humberto sierra and phil terranova underated fighters beat saddler. both of them were easily beaten by willie pep.

Teeto you are a true believer in Robinson to have him at middle, very interesting..

Muchmoore I see you have Villa at flyweight. This is based on h2h, interesting choice given that but ok...

Its just that this is h2h, and i do believe that on his very best MW day, he still can mix it with the best in history, maybe im wrong, but i think i have a good point here

No I think he was brilliant, thats why I made that thread a few weeks ago about him h2h with middles. Right now I'm a little high on Hagler after watching the Sibson and Obel performances but a few weeks ago it was SRR.

I think h2h, the other main guy (and in the eyes of most it will be) is Hagler, just too determined to win. There's always Greb, but because of obvious reasons i dont think he'll be picked much!! But again Monzon may not look as spectacular as Hagler in film, but his dominance was brilliant, great desire to win, so this is hard. Very good thread BTW, theses are the type i like here

Can't believe I left out Hearns at 154 and Whitaker at 135. Difficult to chose between Hearns/McCallum though and Duran/Whitaker.
