Middleweight used to be consistantly one of the best divisions in the sport, but now look at the state of it.
It used to be full of tough as nails kind of fighters with granite chins, huge punches and brilliant boxing skills.

Hagler, Monzon, Mugabi, Toney, McCallum, Nunn, McClellan, Kalambay, Eubank, Benn, Roy Jones, Hopkins, Jackson (though not so much a granite chin at middleweight!), Barkley, Collins.

If you wanted to go really old school then Robinson and LaMotta. Could also add in Sugar Ray, Hearns and Duran even though they wern't really Middleweights.
