Default Greatest Trainer and Why?

Some trainers were technical specialists and others were more like cheerleaders. Put it all into one bucket and who was the greatest trainer? With reasons, please.

Cus was the most intelligent trainer, he gave us the most exciting fighter, and perhaps the most effective fighter ever in his prime. To me he is the greatest, I don't care what the masses think Cus is scarily advanced in some areas especially for a boxing coach I don't see that spark in any other trainer listed.

It was really, really tough, with Dundee, Steward, Roach and Damato all exceptional names but I had to go with Futch. Not quite the fluid motivator that Cus, Manny or Angie were but he was probably better in terms of technical nous. Id probably go:

Futch
Steward
Dundee
D'amato
Roach

as my top 5.

Mr. Blackburn influenced the trainers in the future more than any other trainer in my opinion. I think from the 30s through the 40s the combination punching and working the body to the head is Mr. Blackburns approach.

Ray Arcel also starts very early and has omne of the longest careers with great success on his resume. You better be in top condition to train with and fight for him.

One of my more current trainers I respect is Mr. Benton, George knew the inside and outside game well. He could teach boxing on the move and teach short stepping. He was concerned with balance and upper body movement. A fine trainer!

Cus was a friend and a smart evaluator however he was abit one dimentional
in his approach to the sport. His fighters were in top condition and mentally strong and willing. My amateur team fought against the Catskill kids for many years so I know first hand how Cus approached the game and he knew mine.

I think the team of Arcel & Brown are probably the best corner in the history of boxing.
I think Dundee's corners were outstanding also. He was in charge, one voice and only two basic instructions were usually given. One for offense and one for defense! The fewer words sploken the better, get air in & out and get the fighter focussed again.
Eddie Futch is another favorite, calm and collected and a very knowledgeable man.

the best seconds (cutmen) Eddie Aliano, Ralph Citro are two I used when ever they were avalible. Jimmy Mantoyo from Calif. is another excellant cornerman.

A knowledgeable and confident corner can actually have as big of an outcome
on a bout than the fighters can.
