Boxing

Yeah, not many are following boxing anymore and it hurts IMO. However, the sweet science still holds a place in my heart after a many years in the gym when I was younger. So tell me, who's your favorite fighter?

I always saw Joe Louis as the perfect fighter, but with MA/CC, it was a close match up. But then I started thinking about physical attributes, hand speed, footwork, defense, endurance and heart. I'm thinking MA might have been close but then there was Sugar Ray Robinson.

Seriously, who's the best and who's your favorite?

Entertainment value - Tyson and Lewis all the way.

Thoughts?

You must have meant Mahvalous Marvin Hagler with that description. Errr, or almost any boxer at all.

My all time favorite was/is Marco Antonio Barrera. His fights against the great Eric Morales are legendary. I loved seeing him beat that little weasel Naseem Hamed.

Just watched the Golovkin v. Geale fight.

Triple G is a Beast.

Reminds me of another Great MM Hagler.

Watch this fight.

Golovkin is what makes boxing great.
