    Larry Holmes

    A mighty jabber!
    One other thing he could do?
    Carry a jockstrap!


    Harry Greb

    Oh! How I still pray
    For a few minutes of film
    Of Greb in action


    Sugar Ray Leonard

    I heard Duran say,
    "Sugar! Oh, honey honey!"
    "No, no mas, papi!"


    Evander Holyfield

    "Pass me the needle."
    "Not that one, the one Lee mixed"
    Hulkamania!


    Alexis Arguello

    Did boxing deserve
    A man of such dignity?
    **** Aaron Pryor


    Willie Pep

    A defensive wiz
    Cats envied his reflexes
    You know you do too

    Punching deity
    Never wore Corbett's thong, though
    What a shame that was

    James Toney

    Haikus don't make sense
    They seem like random mashed words
    Much like Toney's speech.

    **** Tiger
    There once was an Ibo named ****..
    With muscles so taut and so thick..
    A man so refined..
    Yet some thought he dined..
    on opponents roasted on a stick..

    Emile Griffith
    He spoke with a Caribbean lilt..
    But just look at the way he was built..
    He fought like a savage..
    when his manhood was ravaged..
    poor Benny paid the price and was kill't..

    Sonny Liston
    A jab that resembled a battering ram..
    a policeman half stuffed in a can..
    a whipped child trapped in the body of a man..
    he was the champion that nobody knew..
