    Big George was kinda strange.

    He was the bad guy early in his career and then became that loveable teddy bear we all know now but went into the ring and housed guys... An anomoly

    hahahaha lovable teddy bear? More like a good tempered Polar/Grizzly bear to me

    How Big George managed to jump from boxing to a successful business career made me a lifelong Foreman fan. He is a man's man. His confidence emanates from knowing he could win you over with his demeanor or beat you to a pulp when the situation demands it. Pure confidence

    I gotta say jmm, he had to sell out his already masterfull skill to gain more audience. Recently his face have been messy after each fight.

    How has PBF not gotten anything the hard way? He's the most talented boxer on the planet and possibly one of the most talented of all time. He hasn't gotten an abundance of gift decisions or anything like that, I think it's a lot harder to earn fans by being the best then it is by being exciting. Whatever though.

    As for some blue collar fighters, which I assume is what the thread is about.

    All time I immediately think of two guys before all others. Not sure why but Hagler and McCullum come to mind.

    Today there is a lot.

    Winky Wright
    Jeff Lacy
    Kelly Pavlik
    Ricky Hatton
    Miguel Cotto

    Umm...that's all for right now.

    Got to say it's Pacman after he castigated Barrera and Morales.

    Believe it or not I will say that Ray Leonard earned my respect the hard way. He didn't have my admiration until he had to reach reached down deep for something a little extra after being outfought to defeat a very skilled boxer and power puncher who had both height and reach advantage, by the name of Thomas Hearns, in their first fight.

    Holyfield also, for the way he made the most of what he had. I'm not really a fan, and I wouldn't call him an ATG, but the way he managed something a little extra to win all those rematches impressed me.
