Default Re: Best boxing minds.

Arguello immediately comes to mind. He knew far more than just which punch was the right one to throw at a given moment, or which sequence of punches were best. To give him credit for just that is to do him a terrible injustice.

He knew as well as anyone in history how to gauge the ebb and flow of a fight; when to back off, when to accelerate, how to read an opponent and be able to take advantage of the smallest weakness. He was brilliant.
