---BOXING

As Fire Pro isn't exactly great for organizing proper weight classes, I'm using three broad weight classes to group my boxers.

*Heavyweight: Standard HW weight class, I typically include fighters at the upper weight class they fought at for balance's sake, so people like Archie Moore and Sam Langford are considered HWs for the sake of my classification, even as they fought lower than that for much of their careers.

*Middleweight: Roughly, Light Heavy to anything above Welterweight.

*Lightweight: Weilterweights and below

More than glad to explain my admittingly random rationale! Right now, I'm mostly focused on Project Boxing, I'll be trying to make more of Ali's opponents, and fill out both my Middleweight and Lightweight divsiions. I'm also throwing in some vintage grapplers here and there, like Masahiko Kimura, and I have more of those to port over from my Fire Pro Returns roster that I made. I'll eventually get back to the UFC and also want to work on an idea of several alternate versions of UFC 1, both one from the same era, and one from the 70s or 80s, involving popular martial artists of the time.

So how are you prioritising/ordering this? cuz you've got some fighters from the 1800's, but not some from the 1900's/2000's.

(Pls don't think of this as a hate comment as this collection is great, i'm just interested).
elmannytv Jul 8 @ 5:59am 
YOU DA MAN! Ive been simming wars between Gotti and Ward, its like I am a kid again!
Senator Phillips  [author] Jul 7 @ 12:47pm 
Oh, it's far from any sort of completion...and I can prioritize Sugar Shane to be my next boxer to make!
elmannytv Jul 7 @ 12:45pm 
This list is complete BUT I am only slightly salty about the exclusion of Sugar Shane Mosley...I'm just saying....you know....
Darkability Jul 2 @ 1:37pm 
thx :D

I could certainly make the Huntington Beach Bad Boy and the Iceman at some point, when I get back to the history of the UFC, might be a little while until then, but I'll get to them.
Darkability Jun 24 @ 12:09am 
Can I suggest Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell? Also there's a new boxer that seems like he could be quite good called Josh Kelly.
Senator Phillips  [author] Apr 22 @ 7:11am 
As soon as I make a few more Middleweights, Ward is on my target list for when I start my Lightweight division. The Ward/Gotti series is my favorite trilogy of fights this side of Ali-Frazier, no way I don't make Irish Mickey Ward! Marquez is another lock on my "must make" list, too. Stevenson could certainly bolster my roster too. Good suggestions!
mm262656 Apr 21 @ 11:33pm 
are you going to do Mickey Ward (boxer) Adonis Stevenson (boxer) Juan Manuel Marquez (boxer),
