I'm with you guys on the brawlers. I'm usually partial to them too. And I'd also add Gatti and Tua to my list. And two modern day boxers, Delvin Rodriguez and Pawel Wolak too. In fact, the two of them fought a war with each other last year that was a 2011 fight of the year candidate. It ended in a draw so they did it again on a pay per view undercard.
Although Mayweather is in some discussions among greats. Barrera and Martinez at least got to win lineal titles in their weight classes and beat some top contenders of their eras.
Cotto and Ward might end up on some ATG lists in a few years, we'll have to see how their careers turn out. That Ward win over Carl Froch is a good start. Ditto for the Cotto win over Margharito, but he might turn into another Kelley or Hearns, where he struggles against most of the big names he fights. Cotto at least beat Margacheato and Hearns at least got a win over Duran.
