    Oh, yeah, certainly historic. I asked the question to try and understand your point better. I wasn't suggesting Tua is the more popular one. Thanks for chiming in.

    @Ra's Al-Ghul Are these the two most famous boxers from Germany and Poland in history:
    Max Schmeling
    Andrew Golota
    ?
    Not greatest, but most famous?

    Poles regard Michalczewski as German generally and Golota took America by storm, far more than Adamek.

    Off the top of my head, which is probably a good way to do something like this...

    England - Henry Cooper
    Mexico - Julio Cesar Chavez
    Canada - George Chuvalo
    Australia - Jeff Fenech
    Argentina - Carlos Monzon
    Sweden - Ingemar Johansson
    Belgium - Jean Pierre Coopman (can't think of anyone else)

    I'm pretty sure that, in Chile, the most famous boxer from Chile is Martin Vargas.

    Do you think he and Calzaghe are neck and neck OR does Driscoll edge "Super Joe" in fame around the world?

    Pretty close. Or maybe Bruno is more popular. I don't know how something like this could be accurately measured.

    Ali is the most famous in the US. Globally, Tyson is more well known by the casual Joe.
