Because if you donīt see the high level of ability in all those opponents then rate them because they have wins between each others becomes a tad superficial IMHO. You know what I mean ? So H2H and resume are very connected!
Like I said, this deserves its own thread....itīs an interesting discussion.
And sometimes I feel like fighters like Joe Louis, for instance, were unlucky !
Not lucky !
Because he get criticized due to his lack of great HWs faced.... while he didnīt have no Frazier or Foreman to face....what he could do ?
Resumes can be circumstantial too! Just like any other stuff in boxing....
Nice post man, good points. I guess I'm just set in that way where I differentiate the two, a LOT.
For instance, I consider Marquez>Pacquiao
But Pacquiao has the higher ranking because of his resume.
