1) Marvin Hagler
2) Julio Cesar Chavez
3) Julian Jackson
4) Larry Holmes
5) Felix Trinidad
6) Saad Muhammad
7) Jeff Chandler
8) Mike McCallum
9) Donald Curry
10) Joe Louis

Hagler is my favorite because he reperesented everything that was great about boxing. He was a complete fighter who came up the hard way and there was zero bull**** in his game and the way he approached it.

I know the reason my list is made up of mostly 80's guys is becuase that's when I got into the sport. I am certain if I had become a hardcore fan in the mid-late 90's that Marquez would be my all-time fave, or at least second after Trinidad.

You hit the nail on the head. I'd seen some Mayweather fights, watched some JMM highlights leading up to their fight, was interested and watched the Diaz and Casa fights and that was that. Smitten. I love this dude haha I would die for JMM

At this very moment? He's pretty right.

But as far as the more abstract "today," yeah, I think that sentiment is kind of tired.

Roy Jones made me a boxing fan, and I can't imagine ever liking a fighter more than I like him.

A tie between Nicolino Locche and Ricardo Lopez.


Locche's insane head movement and almost clairvoyant reflexes are the best I've ever seen.

Lopez is quite possibly the most complete fighter I've ever seen. I don't tend to copy any fighters when I'm in the ring, but I definitely have modeled much of my style after Finito's.

Currently, Mayweather and Hank Lundy are my two favorite fighters to watch, even though I'm not a fan of either fighter's attitude outside of the ring.

Have to give a shout out to Sugar Ray Leonard: If any fighter in history got me into boxing, it's him. (I'm 31 years old and grew up watching the late career of Leonard live, and seeing tapes of him.) He was far and away my favorite fighter in my youth.
