Agree with Ali bigger than life. Also Pryor and Hearns. The self-aggrandizing Leonard did gave me a pain in the neck.
Have to add Smokin' Joe Frazier. The Ali/Frazier fights were classic. I was so caught up in Ali, I didn't appreciate Joe till he gone from the sport.
A pre-Buster Douglas Mike Tyson was truly frightening.
Been watching 40's-50's era fights on ESPN Classic. I have to say, fighters were better back then.
