    On the surface it was Naz, but I think Jones Jnr backed it up better.

    Ali would have been up there for me as well, he would downright humiliate folks in the ring with his showboating.

    Tyson Fury should get bonus points for punching himself in the face though, I mean that takes some moxy ;) :p

    How about when Barrera moved up a weightclass and beat him all around the ring like a ragdoll in a one sided beatdown (the second he stepped up.) I didn't see him showboating in that fight. I just saw Barrera slamming the clowns head into the ringpost :lol:

    Srl and rjj were great at it but Naz was the king. He was great for the sport and brought alot of attention to the lower weights.

    I don't really mind, it was just a Freudian slip really. I'm not denying it was an error on my part. I'm being gracious that you corrected me, I hope you know that, I didn't intend to be snarky in any way. You can keep your post up, it doesn't really matter to me, it's not a big deal really, is it?

    Tyson Fury showboating against Wilder after getting up in the 12th was something else.

    Pernell Whittaker at least deserves to be an option. It was his whole style and the man had stage presence.
