Over the years boxing has seen its share of dirty fighters, so here is my top 5 of the dirtiest:

1. Mike Tyson
2. Toney "two ton" Galento
3. Evander Holyfield
4. Roberto Duran
5. Muhammad Ali

What do you think?

Well I'd have to agree on the past prime Tyson shenanigans

Holyfield has had a long-standing reputation, (although I've not seen enough examples of it), of dirty fighting
.
I don't know about worst of all time, (as in consistently commiting fouls), but I've noticed Felix Trinidad lose a point in more than enough fights for hitting below the belt that it couldn't be just an accident in my opinion.

Zab Judah seems to me to be someone who is nasty in the ring.

I forget which one these guys stated outloud that they see nothing wrong with dirty doings, but both Jose Castillo and Joel Casamayor seem to try and get away with as much as they can.

Nadel Hussein against Manny Pacquiao used almost ever trick in the book.

Tony "Two Ton" Galento was disqualified one time and a reporter asked him "Have you ever heard of the Marquess of Queensbury rules?" and he replied "Who's Queensbury?" so he obviously was never told the rules. Tyson was just dirty after his first loss to Holyfield.
