    Salvador Sanchez
    Bobby Chacon
    Matthew Saad Muhammad
    Marvin Hagler
    Michael Spinks
    **** Tiger
    Izzy Vasquez
    Alexis Arguello
    Rafael Herrera
    Mando Ramos
    Joe Louis
    Lupe Pintor

    A mixture of austere professionalism (Hagler, Arguello, Pintor, Sanchez), tragically flawed wunderkinds (Chacon. Ramos) and the odd ugly duckling made good (Spinks). Something to watch for every frame of mind.

    Alphabetical order. And this is based primarily on the guys I love watching over and over, hence the lack of guys predating the fifties. Just more readily available footage and larger collections for these guys.

    1) Alexis Arguello 2) Nonito Donaire 3) Roberto Duran 4) Jeff Fenech 5) Victor Galindez 6) Harold Johnson 7) Mike McCallum 8) Juan Manuel Marquez 9) Josè Napoles 10) Salvador Sanchez 11) James Toney 12) Pernell Whitaker

    I ain't making a list...I couldn't hold it down to 12 if I tried...it's a character weakness I believe...but these are two back to back that I would include on my list....if I was making one, that is.
