    Default Top 5 CURRENT favorite fighters

    My list:

    1. Roy: He's still not retired yet, so he's still my favorite.

    2. Dawson: Despite his tough fight with Glenn, I'm still a believer/fan of Bad Chad.

    3. Kessler: Despite his loss to Joe, I'm still a fan of the Viking Warrior. Hopefully Pavlik doesnt duck him.

    4. Pavlik: I'm still a huge Pavlik fan, despite his new string of easy fights. He's easy to root for, both as a fighter and as a person.

    5. Kirkland: With his style, his career wont be long, but it'll be fun as hell to watch whilst it lasts.

    Honorable mentions: Williams, Cotto, Judah, and Angulo.

    Fuck me, Dawson at number 2? What do you like about him X?

    Even though they aren't close to the fighters the made me such a fan...

    1) Morales (Well, he is close in Spirit, but not ability).

    2) Pacman (Close in ability, but not in Spirit )

    3) Pavlik - he's quite quickly become one of my favourites. I love watching him fight, and he seems like a likeable chap too.

    4) Cotto - Dull personality, but a skilled, well rounded beast in the ring. I really like watching him, and he's just a formidable fighter. Better than Tito ever was.

    5) Tough one. I used to be a huge Mosley fan, but he hasn't electrified me since he lost to Forrest. Those losses really damaged mosley as a fighter. I still like him a lot though. In fact, Cotto was the first time I ever picked against him. I like Roy too, but it's not exactly close to watching prime Roy. Ultimately though, my number 5 spot is going to have to go to little Izzy

    Judah - brings the fight forward every time, willing to fight everyone, knocked down Mayweather and made him look SLOW, brings attitude into the ring, not scared to lose, beat the shit out of Spinks, a real fighter.

    Mayorga - fights to knock people the fuck out, enjoys it, fights anyone.

    De La Hoya - GREAT boxer, never gets "beaten up" even when he has lost, because he has great skills. Boxer puncher aggressive style.

    Roy - #1 All time but it's hard to root for him when in your heart you know he should have retired several years ago.

    Chagaev - my gf is from Uzbek, and this dude is a pretty bad-ass heavyweight banger, so I have to root for him every time out.

    Tito has never beaten an elite fighter, Cotto has. Tito is one of the most overrated fighters in the history of the sport, along with Hamed. Unbelievable how he is still so overrated.

    Cotto is simply a better fighter than tito, tito has more power, that's it.

    Never in Cotto's career shall you see him beaten in 1 sided, humiliating fashion as tito was against Wright.

    if cotto fought winky at 160, he too wouldve been shut down.

    what elite fighter has cotto beaten? an old ass mosley? zab judah?

    i'll take tito's wins over vargas and an old whitaker over those two.

    At the moment...Mijares, Kessler, Haye, Margarito, Abraham

    Having been a RJ hater in the past, I wouldn't mind seeing him regain the old magic one more time against Calzaghe.....Plus, if he steps it up some more, Valero would fit here

    Have to be honest, I don't really have any big faves at the moment. Most my fave guys seem to have retired, been found out or faded away. I'm hoping David Haye does something to revitalize that shit stink heavyweight scene, so he can be my honourery fave while there's still a prospect of that.

    Knocking out a prime, unbeaten Vargas meant more than winning an 8-4 decision over a past primed Mosley.

    And Cotto has never faced anyone as good as Wright, so who's to say he would do better? Plus Tito wasnt exactly at his prime against Wright either.

    Tito had more power than Cotto, just as(if not quicker) handspeed, was rangier, stronger, just as accurate, and had better stamina.

    Prime for prime at 147.... Cotto does NOT last the distance with Tito.

    Here's the 5 fighters that I will always tune in for. Not necessairily my favorites.

    1. Pacquiao - Lots of drama surrounding his fights.
    2. Pavlik - His "string" of easy fights stands at 1 so far. Not much of a string.
    3. Cotto - I root against the guy, but his fights are exciting.
    4. RJ - Not a fan, but these days, I want to see how he wins or loses.
    5. Vazquez - The guy has been on a real string of exciting fights over the past 2 years.
