Re: The Meaning of Pound for Pound
I've always wondered what people mean when they talk about current pound for pound champions. It always seems that by the time a guy makes it to the top of a pound for pound list, he isn't really pound for pound the best any more (i.e. Mayweather at 154 is not the most dominant fighter in the sport). It's not really about accomplishments, because, if so, Evander Holyfield would still be on people's pound for pound lists. What then? It's almost like if a guy fights top opposition for long enough, it's his turn to be pound for pound champ until he loses.
