To watch its has to be Tyson.

To admire it has to be Lewis.

To read about Jack Johnson.

We might not agree on most things but the name "Bob Satterfield" is a welcome surprise...very good and unconventional choice.

there are so many, but I particularly like these :

Holyfield, exciting and skilled
Walcott, powerful and tricky
C. Williams, powerful and skilled
Frazier, power and inside fighting
Young, defense and counterpunching
Quarry, power and counterpunching
Moorer, vulnerability, handspeed and power
Ali, grace
Ruddock, power and the smash
Sanders, power and counterpunching
Ibragimov, speed and combination punching

Bob Satterfield was IMO the most exciting two-fisted attacking fighter of all times.
