I grew up in LA-area, watching Olivares, Zarate, Zamora, Little Red Lopez, the Sandovals and Alberto Davila. Interesting thing about Zarate and the famous Mexican hook to the liver; he didn't throw it often at all. What he did, and it is unique, was constantly use a short jarring left uppercut to the belly. He used it like most fighters use a jab. Also, despite his height, his efective punches were rarely from the outside; he often came inside under cover of a long looping right and would land his very powerful and short left hook. His right uppercut was also quite damaging.

Chavez would be the most famous I'd say.

Then you've got Sanchez, Lopez, Zarate, Morales, Barrera etc.

Carlos "El Caņas" Zarate was always exiting to watch, can't forget his fight against Alfonso Zamora at the Forum in Inglewood, Zamoras father and Zarates trainer, El Cuyo Hdez, got into a fist fight there in the ring at the end of the fight.

Off the cuff, definetly Carlos Zarate, Salvador Sanchez, Ruben Olivarez, Danny Little Red Lopez,...even Pipino Cuevas (during his title reign, excluding the Tommy Hearns fight,of course)...Julio Caesar Chavez. There are a few others....actually, a couple of months ago Ring Magazine had a Mexican Boxers issue where it named the top 20 of all time, in their estimation...very interesting read.

Mario "Alzbeche" (sp) Martinez, a couple of trainers tell me Martinez at the time he faced Chavez was more popular then Chavez

Miguel Angel Gonzalez

Jose "Manteqia" Napoles, Mexican citzan was famous in Mexico and last time i spoke with a few boxing fans in tijuana they mentioned napoles name

their are other fighters that were well known, some of my previous co-workers could name, names of famous Mexican fighters in their time i just can't recall their names. but they could name a few fighters that they said were good Mexican fighters and well known, of course probably more so in Mexico

Antonio Margarito is growing in popularity
