Most Dangerously Intimidating Boxers of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Mike Tyson Mike Tyson

Good list, and a good representation of some very intimidating fighters. For my experience, Tyson is the right choice for #1, as I never seen so many opponents obviously in fear at pre right instructions as I did for Tyson in his prime. - Ned964

Animal aggression and more technique than given credit for.

2 George Foreman George Foreman George Edward Foreman is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1969 to 1977, and from 1987 to 1997. Nicknamed "Big George", he is a two-time world heavyweight champion and an Olympic gold medalist.
3 Julian Jackson Julian Jackson
4 Rocky Marciano Rocky Marciano
5 Roberto Duran Roberto Duran

No fear, until No Mas. Relentless style insured no opponent would receive a breather. Hands of Stone left it all on the canvas - Ned964

Knocked out a Prime Michael Jackson

6 Sam Langford Sam Langford
7 Roy Jones Jr Roy Jones Jr
8 Sonny Liston Sonny Liston
9 Carlos Monzon Carlos Monzon
10 Thomas Hearns Thomas Hearns

The Hitman. Still a legend in the Motor City. It's a shame his career arc led him straight into arguably the greatest collection of top end talent in any class in history. To fight through only Leonard, Hagler or Duran would have been tough, to attempt to fight through all 3 proved impossible for Hearns. Still, early in his career, he was a devastating puncher who's reputation certainly preceded him. - Ned964

The Contenders
