Lamotta, is awsome.

I like Mickey Ward personally.

I would have liked to see them two spar.

Lamotta was an animal. And to think that the gloves were thinner back then.

Joe Grim. Fighters like Gatti, LaMotta, Holyfield, etc. had skill. Even though they weren't defensive masters, they still had offensive prowess to fend off their opponents. Joe Grim didn't. He didn't have anything, and that's why he was called "The Human Punching Bag". He didn't have power or offensive/defensive skill; he was just tough as all hell.

He was a middleweight and fought some huge punchers like: Philadelphia Jack O'Brien, Joe Walcott, Joe Gans, Bob Fitzsimmons, Jack Blackburn, Johnny Kilbane, and Jack Johnson. He wasn't stopped by any of these fighters.

Joe Grim for sure. He makes Arturo Gatti look like a cautious safety first fighter.

Joe had abnormal skull thickness that allowed him to take any punishment you could give him. His skull was twice as thick as a normal persons. That allowed him to absorb any shot you could give him and he would get up from it.
