We have a lot of fun bantering on here about who we all really liked as fighters, who were our favorites, best, etc.

I'm curious if you fellas have some fighters who you just never liked or rooted for. For whatever reason.

I never liked Naseem Hamed, Hector Camacho, Jack Johnson, Bob Fitzsimmons, Greg Haugen. Or Tyrone Everett. Different reasons each.

Ali is the only fighter who i can truly say is one of my favorites, but also one of my least liked.

I hate any heavyeight that is a HW just by being absurdly fat. I'm not too fond of Leonard or Mike Spinks. Dont like Holmes either. AS he grew older i liked him more lmao

My vote goes to..... Joe Calzaghe. :lol1:

Followed by, Muhammad Ali, Rocky Lockridge, Johnny Nelson, Willie Pastrano. I used to dislike De La Hoya but I don't really mind him now.

Strangely, I really disliked Shane Mosley all the way up to recently. Not to sure why, to be honest. Again, I don't mind him now.

I new addition is most definitely David Haye. Who I simply cannot stand.

junior witter grinds my gears


i used to be a margarito fan
and now i hate his guts


i certainly wouldn't say i hate the kid, but i never want to see adrien broner fight again. i don't mind if he fights, i just don't want it to be on the networks i have to pay every month to see (which is all of them for boxing.)
maybe an espn undercard... maybe.


chad dawson is one of my guys, coming from where he does, and of course having real talent. but he disappoints me so much more than he makes me happy.



late period de la hoya and post retirement de la hoya's personality drove/drives me nuts. he always sounds like he's lying.
if he's really having trouble with drugs i wish him all the best
if anybody wants to see something sad (and i don't follow these things, but this is an eye opener) check out oscar de la hoya on the "Twitter"

If I had to choose Id say: Hamed and not because of his ring entrances but its more because of his overratedness. If thats a word.

Next is Carl Froch. Crybaby. Delusional about how good he really is.

Im taking all bets on the rematch and say Cotto wins a wide decision. While it can't be proven I firmly believe Margs cheated and the difference will show in the rematch.

And for those who will cry Margs was past it or a shell caused by Shane and Pac.....you were all saying the same thing about bCotto when Margs beat him. Anyone willing to bet please PM me.

To me as a huge Cotto fan this fight is the hottest ticket in boxing, Miguel Cotto vs Antonio Margarito the rematch. Order will be restored and Margarito will be punished.......

Cotto on a wide UD is my pick too and im gonna put some hard cash down on that *****

As far as Hagler goes I became much more appreciative after his career was over. My dislike for him was because I like Leonard and Hearns better.

Ottke, Maske and Hill was probably the most boring fighters ever. No chance of seeing a KO.

Hopkins and Ward is to dirty for my liking.

Camcho may have had some great speed, but his fights was dull as hell.

I like Greg too. He was a very skilled fighter and very tough too. He took 5 rounds of constant beating from Chavez (he was past prime even) before the ref stopped it. I also like the fact that he took Camacho's zero. He had it coming, that guy. I don't hate Camacho, but he sure was an egotripper. And a mouth.

Hey Terry. Why didnt you like Greg Haugen? Personally I loved his trashtalking as well as his toughness and, yes, his skillset.

The only things I did like about Haugen was his toughness & that he was a funny smack-talker, much like Paz. Them two had some real funny back & forths in the jawing department. I like it when the trash talking is sort of funny, like the WWF boys do it. Paz & Haugen had that part down pat.

What I didn't like about him was that he had no real punch to get any of the elite guys out of there. If he punched a little harder, he wouldn't have made my list.

I'm nit-pickin' here but I also didn't care for how he presented himself. He had that poor man's "David Cassidy" haircut, the blue jean jacket, his ****iness.....and his mom. Remember when he fought & they would have a little cut-a-way frame on the screen showing his mom & family in some bar with bottles of empty beers all around them? They would carry on like crazy. And when the decision was announced that Greg had lost, she flips the TV screen the finger & takes a long drag on her Camel cigarette.....Just classy moments like that sort of jaded him to me.

Any fighter who's an azzhole outside the ring or a chickensh1t inside the ring.

Some special mentions:

Ray Leonard: Great great fighter.....but a complete azzhole.

Muhammed Ali: Best Heavyweight I ever laid eyes on.....but the way he treated Frazier and other opponents made me sick to my stomach.

Julio Cesar Chavez: A great fighter no doubt.....but the biggest whinging crybaby I've ever seen.....the way his fans grossly overrate him doesn't win him any points with me either.

Hector Camacho: Had some talent.....but if you look up the word "chickensh1t" in the dictionary you'll find his photo.....he's a sandy little butthole too.

Calzaghe because of the way he slaps, how he cherry picked through 21 defenses, and how his fans grossly overrate him.

Ruiz because of he's the most exciting fighter to ever step into a 4 corned ring.

Wladimir Klitschko because he's boring as *****. He could take out almost anybody in under 4-5 rounds, but keeps him in there in boring fashion until the very last round where he might get a nice KO. Underachiever.

Floyd because he never fought Cotto, Pac, or Margarito. But continues to run his mouth during "retirements" although he still is one of the best fighters I've ever laid eyes one.

Antonio Margarito, using plaster like a little biitch.

Chavez Sr for being a cry baby, and Chavez Jr for being a spoon fed baby.

But seriously Tezza, I never liked Hamed (too much talk, and he resembled that famous Charlie Chaplin boxing skit), Camacho either. Don't enjoy that style too much and hated those ridiculous pants either, if he got caught in in a pub with no beer in Gundagai, he'd hafta be able to fight !!!.-----------------NOTE :- Actually, there's never been any such thing as a "pub with no beer", in Gundagai, or anywhere else in Australia, perish the thought.--------:stooges: It's the name of a classic song by the Late Great and Immortal, SLIM DUSTY.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------,Hamed just got :owned:

I like Barerra as a boxer but don't care for his disrespect for his opponents outside the ring.. I used to like Sugar Ray Leonard when I was a kid but grew to like Tommy Hearns more as he never ducked anyone at any point in his career and always remained humble.. I also felt as though he beat Sugar Ray convincingly in the rematch even though it was called a "draw."
