I got a couple of Ringside episodes of all the older fighters and I recorded several fights of all them on ESPN Classic. Sweat P's my favorite. I like the defense fighters as you can tell by my top 3. I think Toneys got my favorite style, we both got him high on our lists. Zab Judah would be #11.
Dag you hit me with the all-time list lol. Yea that's where pretty boy floyd gets his defense from...that philly shell defense that toney uses. I'm a big fan of sugar ray robinson...i read his autobiography and he did some incredible things and some stupid things also.
That philly shell defense works but Toney falls in love with it too much. Thats one of the knocks on him, that he admires his defense and forgets about offense.
Mayweather is a great fighter but hes gotta prove himself against a tough boxer like Cotto. I think there was talks of a De La Hoya rematch. Thats Bull****, its gonna be the same thing all over again. Mayweathers got too much speed, I thought that fight was good the 1st time but it would be boring a 2nd time.
