1) Sally Gunnell when she won the hurdles was a great buz, never heard of her until I watched it live.

2)  Johnny Wilkinson, that last few seconds kick brought dust to the eye.

3)  Nigel Mansell, Murray Walker used to make every manuvour special with his commentary mind.

4)  Eddie The Eagle Edwards, just for his fcuk it, let's have a go attitude.

Cant think of a fifth

A while ago I went to "an evening with Aggers and tuffers".

With the stories they told, it would be wonderful to spend some time in the company of many a cricketer.

Likewise with Nat and some of his opponents.

And a shout out for our very own fishbulb for his mountain running efforts!

Honourable mentions must for cricket fans go for Neil Fairbrother, Clive Lloyd, Muttaih Mullitharan and Wasim Akram

Absolute legends to watch for Lancashire fans in the day.

Sat next to Clive Lloyd’s nephew the other year en route to Barbados, what a nice chap he was too.

Big mention too to Adam Gilchrist....he was one hell of a player.

If we’re going off all time:

Ricky Hatton

Joe Calzaghe

Floyd Mayweather

Barry McGuigan

Nigel Benn

fair to say boxing is my second favourite sport. Up until recently when there stopped being many pick em fights, it was on a par with footy. If football doesn’t change its ways, I can see the day boxing takes priority
