If you follow/ed Boxing, who was your favorite?

Back when Tyson was in his prime, and the fights were on HBO, I followed him. I also like Oscar de la Hoya.

Rocky Balboa of Course!

Just kidding guys...

Because of where i live(right next to brockton, ma) i have to say rocky marciano because he was like our hometown hero and i have to say for back in the day...Ali because he's just so fun to watch i always seemed to do more watching and less yelling at his mistakes.

And for the now, i'd also have to say de la hoya.

Holyfield in his prime was an awesome display of technique and strategy from a heavy weight.

I used to love to watch Hagler. A real down home, tough as nails fighter. Also I like Whitaker for his finesse and Chavez for his body punching.

Tyson in his prime was an absolute monster.

Yes he was. He was so fast and powerful, even though he was usually shorter than many of the heavyweights he fought.

I would have loved to see how far he could have gone had he not had that incident that pretty much ended his career after the Buster Douglas fight.
