I think your list is pretty good.

I would nominate Lennox Lewis' jab and Winky Wright's defense.

I would also add the category 'Intelligence'. That I would give to Ali.

Edited a couple to what I think would be better. Replaced Mayweather with Winky on defence, I replaced chin with George Chuvalo and jab with Lennox Lewis. I also put Tyson on combos. He had some amazing combos during the 80s. I gave Hopkins ring generalship and I gave punch output to Margarito!

Thanks man :)

You know I wanted to say Haglers jab because I loved the way he struck that in peoples faces and I thought about Lewis too.

I seriously thought about the Lewis cross as wel but Maciano laying people out cold got my vote.

Body punching could have been Chavez and I guess finishing might suprise some but Nigel Benn was something like 22-0 and with KOs half being in round 1 and not even Tyson touched that.

Mayweather over Hopkins on defence? I thought about that one.

Winky has great defence and is a good shout.

I could have gave Hopkins ring general, but went with Ali.

I give Hopkins footwork because he is a master at controling the distance at which he fight and makes fighters fall short a lolk poor, also great latteral movement.

Of course this is all dumb fun from me but hey hehe
