    Joe Walcott the Barbados Demon a man his size with freakish power like that would be something to see. Also prime Ketchel good quality same for Langford even more Gans.

    Eddie Booker, Tiger Flowers, Maxie Rosenbloom and Barbados Joe Walcott would be at the top of the list for me for sure.

    Some of the ancient Greeks who boxed in the original Olympics.

    Wonder if they could hook off the jab.

    Sullivan was actually described as developing into a fantastic straight puncher, which isn't surprising when you think of his participation in LPR as well as MOQ rules. People have this idea of Sullivan as a clubber or swinger, when stylistic descriptions of him have him as a straight puncher from a crouch. Even the scientific boxers of the time rated him highly, from what I've gathered from here.

    Also, my choice would be Jack Britton. I have always been fascinated with his minimalist expert Boxing.
