The criminally overlooked Aaron 'The Hawk' Pryor

Aaron Pryor was a bad man in the ring. Pryor and Alexis Arguello had two awesome battles that Pryor won.

Brutal, harrowing but compelling. Nigel Benn vs Gerald McClellan, 1995. I have never witnessed anything that comes close. For more on this fight read Kevin Mitchell's brilliant 'War, baby!'

The most intimidating ring walk and performance I have ever seen. Mike Tyson destroys the previously undefeated Michael Spinks before even laying a glove on him, then proceeds to tear him apart in 91 seconds. Compelling.

Mike Tyson vs Michael Spinks - Full fight 1988 - First Round KO - Heavyw.

Still possibly my favourite fight involving a British boxer. Donald Curry v Lloyd Honeyghan, 1986. Massive upset as the Ragamuffin Man pummels the undisputed welterweight king into submission at Caesar's Palace.

My hero, Nigel Benn. Met the great man last year; he was thrilled that I had seen him fight Anthony Logan in 1988. Lovely guy, and still in frightening shape.

Marvin Hagler v Alan Minter, 1980. The ferocious Hagler takes apart the game but outgunned East Londoner. Crazy scenes at the end of the fight a nasty reminder of 1970s Britain's racist minority.

Was fascinated by this guy as a kid. Ugandan-British Cornelius Boza Edwards - fought all the tough lighter guys in the early '80s: Rafael Limon, Bobby Chacon, Alexis Arguello.

RIP The Miracle Man - Matthew Saad Muhammed. His life story is just unbearably sad; I can't believe no-one has made a film about him

The Hit Man in his best ever win - the 2 round destruction of Roberto Duran. Good argument that he was at his best at light middleweight. Undefeated, wins over Benitez, Duran and 2 #1 ranked contenders.
