    Close to 30 here, grew up watching HBO Boxing After Dark with my dad on most Saturdays since as long as I can remember. The greatest fighter I've personally watched in my lifetime was a prime 24-26 year old Roy Jones Jr during the mid 90's period, Felix Trinidad was also a huge staple in my early childhood, gets extremely underrated due to his one sided loses post 154 but in his prime from 147-154 he was something special and his fights were always exciting and must see tv, he's a live dog vs any Welterweight in history. Watched the rise of Lennox Lewis too, the greatest HW in my lifetime, always rated him highly as a Heavyweight even after his bad KO loses. Was never really impressed by Wlad but admit he made his place in HW history. Mayweather and Pac achieved the most out of anyone I've watched but came along during the end of an era, their achievements post 130 get grossly overrated due to the lack of talent around but it's not their fault.

    Always got hyped when this came on.
