Traditionally speaking, lists compiling ugly celebrities or athletes focus on condemning these less fortunate aesthetic specimen for our amusement and delight. But you end up feeling a little guilty about it afterward.
Rather than condemning The Ugliest Men in Boxing, I've found a singularly satisfying way to celebrate and cheer on gruesomeness, surly demeanor, and a complete absence of any photogenic quality.
It's all about context.
What the reader might find as useful, as I did in assembling these heinous, walking cautionary tales, is to go back to high school in your mind and think of someone who immensely annoyed you or picked on others you cared about. There's always some world class ball breaker during one's tenor in junior high who could drive the screw in.
Can you visualize him yet? Good.
Now imagine this guy has just fallen in love with the perfect woman for him. This woman redeems every aspect of his life and promises nothing but happiness for his future. There's just one minor catch: She had the most passionate night of her life with one of our 10 ugliest men in boxing.
So, please think on these 10 witheringly ugly men from the boxing world not as something to gawk at, but as people so committed, giving everything they had with their ugliness, to contribute a Statue of Liberty-sized obstacle to the contentment and well-being of a sworn high school enemy.
Just look at Floyd Sr. pointing that thumb back at himself as if to guarantee his night with that special lady made all the difference...
