I'd say Arguello, Rocky Marciano. From what I've seen of Rocky, the most he would usually say before a fight was "I hope to win" and would often mention he would work really hard to win his next fight, like the training footage shown in his Boxing's Best bio for the first Walcott fight.

I stop short of "legendary" for everyone on the list, but these fighters were certainly quiet (for the most part), if not humble.
  • Joe Louis*
  • Floyd Patterson
  • Rocky Marciano
  • Henry Armstrong
  • Archie Moore
  • George Foreman
  • Evander Holyfield
  • Joe Frazier
  • Alexis Arguello
  • Ezzard Charles
*Bears repeating. And yes, legendary...
