Poor old A-Force. Won us a gold medal at the Olympics, but gets slated for only being British level as a pro.
He was never a genuine world title challenger despite the David Haye fight.

'Worse' is a relative term. I'd consider drug cheats, and cheats in general worse. Not to mention boxers of a less than sporting nature.

Audley may never have lived up to the hype or expectations, but he wasn't on the roids, he didn't use loaded gloves and he didn't punch the ref or his opponent in a fit of rage after he lost.

Worse Champions.

Dingaan Thobela: I watched him smash up Glenn Catley, and I saw his wraps afterwards. In Catley's words it did look like he had mobile phones strapped across his knuckles.

Sven Ottke: A quality boxer in his day, the way he acted in the robbery of Robin Reid was completely unsportsmanlike. If complaining to the 'bought and paid for' referee after Reid hit him with a legit punch wasn't bad enough, he managed to get a point deducted from Reid.
He moaned and whinged to the point that it became obvious the ref was there to make sure 'The Ghost' would 'win'. Shameful.

Those were world champions. There's also cheating scumbags like Luis Resto and James Grant. Drug cheats such as Luis Ortiz and Alex Povetkin. And murderers like Edwin Valero.

Anyway there's a lot worse than Audley.

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.

I followed Nigel Benns career very closely for reasons mentioned before so he was my favourite.

However there used to be this bloke called Howard Eastman who I just loved watching. He was nothing special but was a real showman.


In terms of MMA it was Anderson Silva

Dave Boy Green? Ive no idea how he won any fights at all. He was so open and some how with every punch (swing) thrown he was even more open. Nope......... he was bad

Sugar Ray Leonard was by far the best boxer of his time and great to watch too

Hitman was more of a fighter and great one at that too but Sugar did it with style, showmanship and the punches came from nowhere. By far my all time fav boxer. That and Tyson before he he got a taste for ear wax

Apart from the obvious already mentioned on here I went to several Duke McKenzie fights. Stylish fighter.

I love Steve Robinson. Probably the best story in British boxing.

And one of his victims, Paul Hoko Hodkinaon, one of the most exciting British fighters of my lifetime

I'm also a big fan of Anthony Joshua and have high hopes for Nathan Gorman although I'm not sure if he's big enough for today's heavyweights
