To me there's only Arturo -Thunder- Gatti .. I mean.. The guy was never more then a c+ fighter as Mayweather said.. Yet this guy was literally prepared to die in the ring.

Who is your most entertaining fighter to watch/re-watch?

Diego Corrales was as entertaining as they come. He would have destroyed Gatti. Gatti was like watching a mosquito annoy a tree. His lack of power is what made him good.

Agreed, and I would throw Hearns in the mix as well.

Don't you mean the opposite? His power is what won him fights when he was getting badly beaten and behind, cut, hurt etc etc.

Go actually watch more than one of his fights. His true one punch KO power is what kept him in fights a lot.

Nigel Benn, Naseem Hamed and Mike Tyson.

By the way, I disagree with the way in which Gatti is viewed. He was the best/among the best in his division for several years and has a good resume. He's not a great, but he was pretty good.

I'm a true fan of the sport so any fighter who has mastered his particular style is someone I want to watch...

For aggression and non stop punching no fighter does or did it like "The Hawk" Aaron Pryor...I've never seen a fighter who so much stamina and energy...The guy just wouldn't stop punching and stayed in his opponents face...

For power and brute force Julian Jackson is the hardest puncher I've ever seen p4p...Jackson had concussive power in both hands, and once you were hurt it was a wrap...

While he had a glass jaw and lacked the heart and passion you'd like to see out of fighters, I don't know if I've ever seen a better pure boxer than Howard Davis Junior...He was a joy to watch particularly as an amateur and early in his professional career...When it comes to speed, accuracy and technique I'm not sure Davis had any peers...

For blood and guts its hard to go against Arturo Gatti...The heart and determination he showed in the ring was ridiculous...I can remember some of his fights thinking this guy is gonna get killed if they don't put an end to this... Next thing you know Gatti's got the guy on his back...
