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"..
