Some early suggestions, obviously all are up for debate.

1. Marquess of Queensbury.

Founded modern boxing, invented the current rules.

2. Jim Corbett

Revolutionised the technical aspects of boxing, first 'intelligent' fighter.

3. Tex Rickard

First promoter to create 'stars' of boxers.

4. Muhammad Ali

The icon of boxing, carried its popularity through to the modern era.

5. Julio Cesar Chavez

Made boxing a national fixation in Mexico, the rest is history. (Up for debate of course, just throwing some ideas out)
Not sure about Chavez, he was a ROCKSTAR

and Great for the game and especially in Mexico but i think Mexico has always had a love for Boxing. They have certainly had great fighters far out dating Chavez anyway, guys like Kid Azteca who turned pro in 1932 were viewed as hero's... So im not so sure on Chavez but im open to being wrong - i wasnt around after all!
