Default Who were the best mind gamers in history?

I'm not talking about what a fighter would pull off during the build-up of a fight. I'm talking about mind games being played inside the ring.

There are some obvious choices:

Ali

Jack Johnson

Hamed

Leonard

Leonard wasn't really a talker inside the ropes. He would do other stuff to upset his opponents and gain an advantage. The Hagler fight is perhaps the best example : Leonard would taunt, clown, even put his hands in Hagler's face everytime he had a chance, when the ref would break them up.

It was really getting to Hagler, who perhaps would have fought a more paced and disciplined fight instead of getting angry, which Leonard expected.


List your best mind gamers, what they did and how it worked for them.

Duran.

From staring at Hagler during running and giving Leonard's wife abuse. Sitting on Davey Moore's stool at the end of a round and tapping his chin or sneering in fights. He was good inside and outside the ring.

"What can you expect from a guy who hits his girlfriend?" he said. "I'm glad he has agreed to fight a man again.

I love Vitali's choice of words. He's class.

I love how Chisora is looking down, so he keeps the courage to actually smack him. He knew if he looked at Vitali as he smacked him he would have sh** his pants.

As to the question, Ali.

Roy Jones to some extent. All that hands-dropping, taunts, sticking out his tongue etc. paid off during this fights in his prime.
