    Very hard for me to look past the 'Four Kings' - love them all for different reasons. The kids today avoiding each other should look at those 4 names and see how each elevated the other, win or lose.

    Hagler
    Duran
    Hearns
    Leonard
    ...
    ...
    Jim Watt
    Joe Calzaghe
    Josh Taylor

    Are my more partisan faves!

    2. Pac
    3. Morales
    4. Mayweather
    5. Sergio Martinez
    6. Mike Tyson

    Yes - from Perth originally, but live in Edinburgh now.

    I was a bit young to remember Buchanan, so Watt was the first Scottish boxer I really 'followed' - there's been quite a few others over the years - Paul Weir, Pat Clinton, Alex Arthur, Scott Harrison, Ricky Burns - and there is Lee mcGregor and Kash Farooq coming up now.

    Grew up being a huge Nigel Benn fan

    Also hold a soft spot of Kirkland Laing after being exposed to a few of his fights from a very early age

    Pure nostalgic reasons but I'll stand by them even today
