Sugar Ray Robinson. No contest. The most complete fighter ever. Amazing Power, Graceful athletic footwork and boxing skills second to none.

Possibly the former great light heavyweight, Harold Johnson...so smooth, so effortless, so skilled, and his style was about as "proper" as it gets in the ring.

I would love to fight like Sweet Pea but at Super Middleweight and frustrate everyone else.

Just for the glory I'd be awesome to fight like Roberto Duran at HW if it wasn't for the headaches after the fights. ;)

Hagler may not have been the best boxer on the planet, but for
guts, talent and class, he had few equals.

The power of Nigel Benn, the skills of Sugar Ray Robinson and the chin and speed of Muhammad Ali.

Easily early Tyson.

Why? He was as slippery as a wet bar of soap, hardly ever got hit, and he could end fights within minutes.

Who wants to fight like a guy with a weak hand?

Joe Frazier-strong as hell, fast, and a good swarmer

Marciano-Small, always had leverage on his side,Strong as hell, unreadable defense

Foreman-PUNCHING POWER, he also had speed and later in his career smarts

Tyson-Combinations, punching power, speed, just pure determination and killer instinct

Jake Lamatta-Strength of a Heavyweight at middlewieght, chin like some of the best in the hw class, he was like a hw in a middleweights body

Sugar Ray Robinson- just guess

Joe Louis-best all around fighter

Jack Dempsey- defense punching power he had it all

good question

almost robinson, but his defense was not perfect. Probably his chin and his attack were so good, that he did not have to work too much on that

almost mayweather, but he lacks power

almost whitaker, but he lacked power and was too defensive to make money

almost hearns, but he was chinny

almost hagler but had power in only one hand

the defense of willie pep, the infighting of duran or chavez, the outside attack of thomas hearns, the chin of chavez

ferocity

I would have to say two people.

Mike Tyson, if i walked into a club...knowing that i am the youngest heavyweight champion of all time...who is going to **** with me?

But Mayweather for boxing skills, if someone squared of with me, id jus make them look stupid!

Duran. I just liked his style. Not perfect in any way, but it sure as hell was damn entertaining.
