You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

Tyson, Frazier, Ali (in that order)
Also, I don't know if it counts as inspiration, but Anderson Silva is amazing.
"[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

I am shamed. Joe Louis is my favorite boxer to watch, expecially when they show him in slomo and you can see the punch start at the balls of his feet and wind its way up his ankle and leg and hips and shoulder and go out his arm.

Style: MMA, JKD philosophy
Jim Kelly. For being the coolest guy in Enter the Dragon and beating up pigs.
Maurice "Mighty Mo" Smith. For being a JKD guy willing to throwdown in MMA.
Quentin "Rampage" Jackson. For being the first guy I've ever seen successfully use pro wrestling slams in MMA.
Ronald Duncan. I was young, he was a ninja, turns out he was a fraud. As a teenybopper I just thought it was cool every move he had was a claw to the eyes or a bite. Sigh.
