My favourite to watch really go''s in cycles, have spells where i just watch a certain fighter, others where i watch real wars and other times technical chess matches
Right now im watching all the live stuff i can, apart from that a lot of old Duran fights and Juan Manuel Marquez stuff. Would have been a nice fight them two come to think about it....I got Cholo

If ur asking my favourite fighter list it goes like this

1. Mike Tyson
2. Roberto Duran
3. Joe Louis
4. Miguel Cotto
5. Joe Frazier

*From here its basically interchangeable

6. Felix Trinidad
7. Juan Manuel Marquez
8. Roy Jones Jnr
9. Nigel Benn
10. Wilfredo Gomez

No point in that second half to be honest as i could easily change it with these
Sonny Liston Jamie Moore Aaron Pryor Erik Morales James Toney lol

Basically a list of my favourite fighters but;

Alexis Arguello
Carlos Monzon
Harold Johnson
Dick Tiger
Floyd Mayweather
Ezzard Charles
Emile Griffith
Mike Tyson
Joe Louis
Wilfred Benitez
Carlos Ortiz

That's 11 it's really hard for me to narrow it down to 10.

Missing guys who I love to watch and watch regularly and who I consider myself a huge fan of like;

Sonny Liston
James Toney
Roy Jones Jr
Pernell Whitaker
Erik Morales
Kid Gavilan

The list goes on and on.

As you can see, a wide range of styles.

Pretty much all of those have solid fundemental and technical skills along with a high skill level.

Fighters I'm a fan of tend to need to fit that criteria.

Not always, but often.

Only one that isn't is Mike Tyson but it's hard to have lived through the 80's and not be a fan of Mike Tyson.

Dempsey and Tyson were absolute beasts. Very entertaining to watch. On a cynical note, Valuev. I like to watch him blundering around the ring.

But surely the most entertaining has to be Muhammad Ali. Not only his fighting style, but his whole persona which he brings into the fight. You just have to love a man who runs around with his arms high up in the air yelling 'I told y'all I'm the greatest, but you didnt listen to me!' after downing Sonny Liston. Ha! I wish I could have seen those fights live. Unfortunately, I was born too late. Oh well...
