You need to find a new way to spend your time
Easiest way to answer for me is to list whose fights I return to the most for a rewatch in more recent times:-
George Foreman, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Juan Manuel Marquez, Marco Antonio Barrera, Andre Ward
Just Philly phighters in general!
but out of them
Willie The Worm Monroe
Bobby Boogaloo Watts
Frank The Animal Fletcher
Eugene Cyclone Hart
Gypsy Joe Harris
Where's Rocky Balboa and Joe Frazier?
I love Frazier but he is a HW, and heavies never crack my favorite lists. He’s probably top 20 or so.
In no particular order: Duran, Hagler, Dempsey, Pacquiao, Liston--Jones Jr, Pep, Barrera, Lomachenko and Robinson would round out my top ten.
Favourite 5 whose careers I actively followed live = Lennox Lewis, Joe Calzaghe, Carl Froch, Manny Pacquiao and GGG.
Favourite 5 whose careers I've retrospectively researched = Sam Langford, Packey McFarland, Harry Greb, Joe Louis and Roberto Duran.
Not as easy when I had to write them down.
stay safe guys.
No Bad Bennie..... surely not.
If I could cram 20 names into my top 5 he and several others might have made it lol
1. Floyd Patterson
2. Mike Tyson
3. Tommy Morrison
4. Joe Louis
5. Ken Norton
Matthew Saad Muhammad
Sugar Ray Robinson, Jose Napoles, Sweet Pea, Alexis Arguello, Joe Louis
