For right now it's gotta be Bernard Hopkins. When he retires it'll be Edison Miranda.

Paul Williams. It hurts to not say Shane Mosley, but I asked for only one name, so Paul Williams it is.

I know I'm gonna get stick for this but....


Ricky the hitman Hatton, as you lot didn't know :p

Why?
He's a local lad done good, he's very entertaining imo both in the ring and in interviews. Despite all his fame and success he's still just Ricky from Hyde and always will be.
He still drinks round here and is overall just a decent bloke.

its a tough question, Bhop get its though, but Ricky was close.

I just the fact at 43 Bhop can go out there and put the masterclass on that he did against Pavlik. Hes not always the most exciting in ring fighter but imo is by far and away the smartest.

I wanna see him in a rematch with Calzaghe,(if joe has the bottle) and then once he beats him he should retire. That loss to Cal still irks me though

Calzaghe doesn't do rematches and never will it's him and his dad's policy, nothing will change at this late stage.
Also Calzaghe hates Hopkins so doesn't want to give him the payday.

Calzaghe should retire now though, he has nothing left to prove.

Juan Manuel Marquez. Serious claim to the p4p title and is without a shadow of a doubt the best pound for pound "boxer" active today. the only fight I actually care about being made: JMM-Pacman III.

I really don't have a favourite anymore, when i started watching boxing i loved Trinidad, Morales, Vargas, Calzaghe & Hamed. Joe is the only one still fighting at a good level, so i suppose il have to say him.

Boxing is the greatest sport and i have tremendous respect for all the fighters but at this stage i am very interested in the lightweight / welter division with Ricky Hatton, Pacman on nr 2 and 3 but i am intrigued with the life and performance and style of Antonio Margarito on number 1. Floyd is retired no ?:)
