    Favorite Pugilists

    I love watching and reading about boxing, and I love being exposed to new masters of the sweet science that I can read up on.

    My personal favorite boxer is Jack Dempsey, I love reading about old fights from that era (there are a couple of great Dempsey biographies out there, my favorite is Jack Dempsey, the Manassa Mauler by Randy Roberts) and I am a fan of that era of boxing.

    List your favorite boxers here, and if you want to, what you think makes them great or unique!

    Good choice! I hadn't heard of Sullivan, probably because he's from so long ago. Aside from being a great American athlete, he also has an awesome mustache.

    Reading his wikipedia entry, I'm amazed at how tough fighters back then must have been, fighting for 80 rounds, passing out from loss of blood etc.

    Another great choice. There is a cool book about Tunney as well, Tunney: Boxings Brainiest Champ. To me he was similar to Jack Johnson in that he demonstrated a smart, defensive boxing style, as opposed to the straight-up aggression of Jack Dempsey.

    All those fellows mentioned above were great.

    I'd just like to add that It's too bad that the racism of his time kept Sam Langford from fighting for a championship. I think he deserved a try at his division's title.
