    Sweet list. Predictable in places (as it should be), yet also surprising when you throw in names like Johnson, Griffith, Tiger, and Napoles.

    Bit disappointed by the lack of fighters from Philadelphia on your list, Philly.

    Great to see Machen and Williams held in such high regard. Had no idea you were a Patterson fan. Morrison...ugh.

    I think everyone's a Patterson fan!

    I used to hate Morrison but I have so much sympathy for him now after his wild trainwreck of a life. His fights are also exciting as hell imo.
