I think you are confusing "good defence" with "overall skill". Defence is only one facet of boxing skill, it is far from the be all and end all.

I'll ask you - who was the more skilled fighter, Nicolino Locche or Sugar Ray Robinson? James Toney or Sugar Ray Leonard? Floyd Mayweather Sr or Thomas Hearns?

A better defence obviously does not always equal better skills/a higher skill fighter.
