    What a list! So the decade of 00's was of course not very well received by boxing fans. But other than the top fighters, did you have any favorites!??
    top fighters not in consideration ( Old Tyson, Lennox, the two Klit's, and I guess Haye?)

    Sugar Nikolai Valuev
    Hasim "The Rock" Rahman
    Oleg Maskaev
    Shannon "The Cannon" Briggs
    Ruslan Chagaev
    Samuel "The Nigerian Nightmare" Peter
    Corrie Sanders
    John "The Quiet Man" Ruiz ( along with trainer Norman Stone)
    Chris Byrd
    Siarhei Liakhovich
    "Obese" James Toney
    Really Old Evander Holyfield
    Chris Arreola
    Lamon Brewster
    Calvin Brock
    Ray Austin
    Larry Donald
    Tony Thompson
    Eddie "Fast" Chambers
    Kevin Johnson



    I kinda liked Chris Byrd

    Had a soft spot for Matt Skelton due to his K1 past.

    On that list I like Sanders and Briggs. I liked Witherspoon too, but he might have been retired by then.

    Always a fan of Holyfield no matter how old he got before retiring.
    Right now I do love Briggs but purely for his trolling. Wlad on the boat was fckin comedy gold

    Hard not to be a fan of Evander, watching Toney KO him was a sad sight though.

    I always liked Herbie Hide. The guy had blazing speed for a HW and a good punch on him. Shame he was small and so glass chinned but he made for exciting fights. You knew in his fights someone was going to get knocked out!
