    For me it’s Alexis Arguello in his quest to win that title in a 4th weight class against Pryor. It just seemed he wanted it so badly it hurt seeing him cry after the 2nd fight.

    Joe Hughes.

    The guy shouldn't have ever boxed even as a lowly amateur due to his disability (basically can't use his right hand). However, he has a killer left, and he's very clever with it!

    Right now, he is a top European level fighter, and has been unlucky IMO in some of his fights against some top names. He should have had the Euro title IMO.

    A true inspiration to me and a lot of others. Here's an article.

    Jesse Feliciano was an FNF level journeyman whose determination was basically death defying. He fought Kermit Cintron, Andrey Tsurkan, Alfonso Gomez and a few others. Unfortunately the ridiculous punishment burned him out pretty quickly.
