10 Fighters who have fascinated me in the 65 years I have been following boxing.
1. Joe Louis. I first got interested in boxing reading a pictorial article about his life. I was 11years old and I still remember the intense sadness when I read the Marciano defeat.Joe Louis, The Brown Bomber
2, Ray Robinson. As close to perfection as any fighter could attain. p4p perfection
3. Liston. I was still naive enough to believe a fighter was unbeatable.
4. Ali. Obviously. I would bet he fascinated most during his career.
5. Larry Holmes My favourite heavyweight.
6. Tommy Hearns. How could this stick insect generate such power.
7. Kevin Finnegan. I don’t know why. Skill and punch resistance perhaps.
8. Barry McGuigan. The first time I saw him I told my cousin I have just seen a future World Champ. Ruined by a greedy manager.
