UFC star Vitor Belfort spoke with FightHub TV about some of his favorite boxers:

"I admire a lot of people in boxing, I believe each season we see new champions. I personally have my own style and I don’t try to mimic nobody but I sure identify myself with Mike Tyson’s style. He inspired me a lot through my career. For sure he is a big icon as boxer for me and all the old school guys like Ali, Roberto Duran, Oscar de la Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, Roy Jones Junior and many others."

Belfort has long been known as one of MMA's best boxers and strikers, and also said he'd love to train with Manny Pacquiao and Freddie Roach. Roach has helped out a lot of top MMA fighters in the past, including Georges St-Pierre, Anderson Silva, B.J. Penn, Tito Ortiz, and others, so it wouldn't be a shock if Belfort did hook up with Roach sometime in the future, and I'd personally love to see it. Vitor's been one of my MMA favorites for a long time.
