    Duran - Incredible skills, great and exciting to watch at his best, entertaining personality, sheer machismo and badassery.

    Hagler- Superb technician, tougher than nails and leather combined, pure unadulterated badass, only but admiration for him and how he made his way to the top.

    Greb - has a mythical quality to him, learning of his story and life is incredible, incredibly interesting man as a whole.

    Langford- same as above.

    Morales - One of the best crowd pleasers ever, absolute badass and thrilling to watch when he really wanted to prove something.

    Moore- Incredible life story, amazing guy to study and learn things from, whether it's about Boxing or life.

    Napoles - Pure eye candy to watch in the ring, mantequilla.

    Louis - Arguably the all time greatest puncher to watch, incredibly inspirational man for what he meant during his time.

    Robinson - arguably the finest offensive machine ever, otherwordly when he shifted up a gear.

    Benny Leonard- same as Greb and Langford.

    True but he had a lot of talent to work with and work ethic. He just let his personal life get in the way.

    I believe he was supposed to fight Azumah Nelson but basically went into a depression.

    Personally, I see this as the best list so far. But it's a very subjective subject.
