Many of the boxers as mentioned above, but I have to include Michael Watson. Terrible end to a fabulous boxer in his prime. Lennox wasn’t bad either...

If I’m allowed to add foreign fighters to this list then Hagler, Hearns, Ali and the pretty boy Sugar ray Leonard. I can’t say I watched them all live but they had some great fights which I watched with my dad on tv.
