Thats a very good list. Danny "Little Red" Lopez was far more exciting the many of those guys though.

Ironic but fighters that were limited but had a big heart are usually the best to watch.

Lopez would have been on this list, but his last major fight was 30 years ago. All-time, he would be in my top 10 most exctiing.

Gomez also should be on this list. Hearns and Gomez were more exciting than many of the names I mentioned. Thank you
