    I am curious to know if there are good boxers from Arizona and that if Arizona has a good boxing scene?

    I maybe going there soon and would like to know what the history of boxing in Arizona is?

    If I were you, I'd make this your thing and do one thread like this for every state. Once a week for fifty weeks.

    There's a few...

    Arizona Jim, for one. Lightning fast punches.

    There's Arizona Tom. Not the best chin, but don't let him land his left hook.

    Arizona Miguel... not too crafty, very workman like.... great with body shots.

    Arizona Tyrone... insanely athletic. Very defensive. Fans complain he doesn't brawl it out enough.

    Of course I can't forget Arizona Phonnaku. Has a Thai boxing background... but made the transition to boxing pretty smoothly.

    Arizona Falcinelli; lots of punches, but doesn't have the power in the shots to do much damage to anyone.

    Arizona Okondjo... originally from Nigeria. Big puncher, fan favorite.... but just can't stay motivated enough to keep on at a high level.
