Re: Who are your favorite boxers?

 

My favourite fighters would be of no use trying to emulate. They are all exciting warriors, who often got hurt, but showed great bravery, and often produced miraculous victories.

Guys like Gatti, Bobby Chacon, Holyfield, Matthew Saad Muhammad, Julian Jackson, are not guys you should aspire to be like, as it is too dangerous.

Guys like Wilfred Benitez, Micheal Nunn, Pernell Whittaker, even Mayweather, are guys you could emulate and hopefully have a long career....but few fans.

Now if you were to be like Ray Leonard, you could be whatever you needed to be, to win a fight.

Those are my top retired fighters. While I love so many those typically stand out for me.

Holyfield, J Jackson, Dempsey, Tyson, Wlad.

 

Nice list pal. I am a little puzzled as to why you have included Wlad though, simply because all the others were exciting, and Wlad was known to be much less so. Vitali fits in more with the rest of your choices.

Just want to clarify something with you pal. The list was not my fav fighters. He had asked who he should try to emulate, and I listed guys it would be dangerous to emulate (those were amongst my fav's) and I listed guy's who it would be wise to emulate, who were not amongst my fav's. Mayweather is one of my LEAST fav's.

Well I like the early Wlad, when he wasn\t as defensive. I actually haven\t followed Vitali much but he is more natural of a fighter perhaps.

I would have gone for Golovkin but gotta go with Pacquiao, ultra aggressive, fanpleasing style. With that said I still appreciate how talented Mayweather is but manny is my man all the way.
