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.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.
