Boxing role models for children? Unless you grew up in the guetto, NO. Doesn't matter how good they are, they still beat men for a living.

Many young kids look up to top athletes and try to emulate them.

Wlad, Vitali, Manny and Barrera who was left off the list.

Paulie Malignaggi is a great role model for guido's everywhere

I dont really know enough about Adamek outside of the ring to say hes a good role model but he seems decent enough.

Juan Diaz would be good too.

Juan Manuel Marquez and Vitali Klitschko.

I would have included Wlad and Manny but their fornication puts them slightly out of reach of "role model"..

Inside the ring most. Outside none. All of those dudes got sh1t with them. Parents should be their kids role model.
