    Makes you realize there actually arent THAT many, my first thought was you must be missing some obvious ones, but drawing a blank unless you go back the better part of a century, and then I just wouldnt know. What about guys like Tyson or De la hoya, who in fact were lefties that fought orthodox. It surely did impact the things they were good at, much the way Hagler or most any truly good switch hitter can be so effective. I dont think Martinez has any business on the list honestly, kind of always thought he was more of a cool style but overrated. He got a late start to boxing so maybe could have been up there, but for me nah.

    Yes. Sorry mate it isn't a definitive list. You can vote for him if you like, he was certainly a one off. Hard enough to narrow it down to 10 and even that is highly subjective.

    The first southpaw heavyweight champion that deserves a mention but not on the list Michael Moorer and someone who defiantly should not be on the list Charles Martin.

    Switch hitters should not be included.

    Winky Wright was a good one, forgot about that genius boxer.
