    Easy: FOTC Frazier.

    Only Duran in Leonard 1 came anywhere near that imo.

    One performance that sticks out is Chico Corrales bleeding profusely from the mouth to the point that the ring doctor was worried about how much blood he was swallowing. I remember him in tears pleading to be allowed to continue against Cassamayor.

    Of course his performance against Castillo sealed the deal on how much heart and determination he fought with.

    There were so many. There were guys like Paret, Saad Muhammad, Chacon, and Gatti that would take all the **** u could unload and come back and destroy their opponents. On the other hand, u had guys like Frazier, Duran, Briscoe, and Spinks. They were constantly on the attack and at their best would have 2 be pretty near damn killed 2 be defeated.

    Agreed .. to fight like he did, giving up so much size against some amazing fighters near blind in one eye is near insane ..

    That was a Premium answer instead of the generic “Fraiza had so much hart” not that he didn’t but everyone already knows.

    I never heard of this guy till today cheers!
