From reading/research, I'd have to say Jack Dempsey.

If it's who I saw on TV, etc., Muhammed Ali.

If I have pick one, I'll go with Ali.

Dempsey has "helped" me with his insights in "Championship Fighting." As for Ali, I remember him battling Frazier, and couldn't help but admire his unique skill.

In the animation "Cars," Lighting McQueen claims to "float like a Cadillac and sting like a Beamer."

Doesn't get better than watching Ali for me.

But then, the more I see the maniac Tyson in his prime... wow. The more I admire his coaches for harnessing soooo much talent in suuuuch a wacked-out individual.

That might be the most impressive accomplishement to come out of that camp, which had a pretty stong record of impressive accomplishements while Tyson was in his prime.

Smokin' Joe Frazier is up there at the top, not that I have seen many of his fights, but he was impressive, especially considering the information that came out after his death about him being blind in one eye.

Ali fights are always a load of fun to watch.

My vote goes to George Foreman. Not the later overweight, overhyped one. But the George in his prime.

And Teofilo Stevenson. Wow, what a cross. And his jab wasn't too bad either.
