A surprise invite to Jeffries to.
Jose Napoles, Armando Muniz, Ernie Lopez, Raul Soriano, Adolph Pruitt and Hedgemon Lewis. The reason I chose those 6 was because all 6 fought each other. Almost had a 7th dinner guest with Oscar Albarado but he never fought Napoles. Still, with those 6, conversation would be electric. Dinner might also require a referee.
I would invite the people I mentioned in this thread:

Russell Peltz or Bob Arum
And maybe add Arthur Mercante and Gil Clancy.
The less touchy.
Mia St John
La Bonita Fernandez
Sugar Ray Robinson
Three very different trainers, three different champions. A comprehensive trove of knowledge.
So many wonderful opportunities...my top 6 Boxers:
Great personalities, a lot history and a lot realtalk.
Of course it would also be very interesting to ask Sonny Liston about one or two open questions^^ Or trainer legends like Eddie Fudge, Cus D'Amato. Jimmy Jacobs could bring some very rare film treasures from his collection and present them...and Bert Sugar will provide his expertise.
There'd be so much honesty and boxing knowledge there. Lots of stories, advice and motivation.
Gilbert Odd (possibly the greatest boxing historian ever)
The amount of knowledge, experience and stories would be incredible from these guys. Hard to limit to just 6. I'd probably place Pierce Egan and Joe Humphreys on the list as well.
Are you desperate to see someone murdered?!
Emmanuel Steward, Lennox Lewis, Vitali Klitschko , Dwight Qawi, Larry Holmes, Gerry Cooney
You may need a translator on hand for Harada- haha
