    Who was the greatest Cuban Boxer of all time?

    Who was the greatest Cuban Boxer of all time?


    I know the Poll is missing a few really big names, but I tried to mainly include fighters that have existing footage around... It was also real hard to make with only 10 choices.


    Please post your choice, especially if you picked "Other."

    My favorites were Gavilan, Luis Rodriquez, Florentino Fernandez, and Stevenson. I respect all the others greatly.

    dANG! I didn't see Napoles' name or I would have voted for him. Chocolate was no slouch though, so I won't rescind my vote.

    There is a all-time top 35 Cuban ratings in the CBZ ALL TIME RANKINGS + DISCUSSION thread - page 3, last thread. Although Ramon Castillo was inadvertently left off. He would be rated top 10.

    Napoles or Gavilan for me

    I casted the vote for Nap.

    Though I have no issue with the Keed getting the call.

    Tough choice.

    Luis Rodriques and Black Bill should be on the list -- I wouldn't have included the amateurs.

    Luis Rodriguez is a terrible omission on here, especially since he would be the #1 pick for quite a few people, or at least in strong consideration for it.

    And with all due respect, Floro Fernandez shouldn't be on here. He was a good top contender for a few years, but that's all.

    My pick was Gavilan.

    Luis Rodriquez, Gavilan, Napoles, Chocolate, Stevenson, Fernandez (Really beat Fullmer and only man to stop Chegui Torres) one of my personal favorites for power.
