    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.

    So many wonderful opportunities...my top 6 Boxers:

    Floyd Patterson
    Max Schmeling
    Archie Moore
    George Foreman
    Joe Louis
    Rocky Marciano

    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.

    Ezzard Charles
    Marvin Johnson
    Michael Watson
    Carl Thompson
    Marvin Hagler
    Emmanuel Steward

    There'd be so much honesty and boxing knowledge there. Lots of stories, advice and motivation.

    Gilbert Odd (possibly the greatest boxing historian ever)
    Harry Greb
    Ruben Olivares
    Mike Tyson
    Fighting Harada
    Eddie Townsend

    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.
