    Pacquiao taking all that punishment from a 17 pound heavier Margarito was insane.

    Pacquiao getting flattened in the third round by that Roidquez nuke and then getting up and trying to win back the round was insane.

    Pacquiao taking massive flush bombs at 40 years old from Thurman was insane.

    I'd say Nigel Benn deserves an honourable mention too. Not that he couldn't be hurt, but he almost always had the will to continue, to get up and fight. Froch number 1 for me tho, he said himself that he could not be knocked out and after seeing him get up after about 2/3 seconds after that heavy knockdown from Groves I think I actually believe him. The man can not be knocked out!!!

    Senior I presume? I should have had Sr in my list above. The will he showed against Watson in the 2nd fight was extraordinary, if ultimatly tragic

    Good one, and Amir Khan. Despite his flaws, the kid was a true warrior

    Imho the mentioned guys NEED to be 15 rounders. The gap between 15 an 12 rounds is HUUUUUGE. It's a completely different sport, imho, where the will and the tactic play a much more important role than in 12 rounds boxing. A better sport (that kills people, and that's why it was forbidden).

    I've always been a fan of Frazier. Sheer will. One eyed sheer will.

    But I take my hat off in front of basically every boxing champion. The will of a boxing champion is way way over the average people's. Specially, 15 rounder's will, as I said.

    Of course Sr. Junior's delusional, but I hope working with RJJ makes a difference.
