Cheers for green k man - The Jackal Cheers! - Carnivore 
Default The greatest continental European boxer ever?

That means we aren't counting UK. And they have to be born in Europe. Who gets your vote? Here are my candidates: Ingemar Johansson, Max Schmelling, Paulino Uzcudun, Georges Carpentier, Marcel Cerdan, Nino Benvenuti, Henry Maske, Johnny Bredahl.

Out of all these, I think I'd pick Benvenuti.

That's a good question. I'd go with one of the following; Marcel Cerdan, Steve Collins, Paulino Uzcudun, Laszlo Papp, Max Schmeling, Georges Carpentier or Nino Benvenuti.

Kostya Tszyu isn't to bad a shout either.

You can't choose Collins, since he's not from continental Europe.

He's from Republic of Ireland, which isn't part of the United Kingdom. It's North-western Europe, which should qualify him.

Yeah, but it's an island, so it can't qualify.
