Default Re: PBF is avoiding MARGO/ SPADDY/ MOSLEY/ CINTRON/WILLIAMS/CASA/SPINKS/WITTER/PAC/TSZYU/

Let me preface my remarks by saying I am NOT a fan of Pretty Boy. (I've given the reasons too many times on other threads.)

But he's not afraid of anyone. None of those guys are. When you've been in the ring that many times, there are sometimes questions of confidence, but no-one is afraid of anyone, even if they're going to lose.

However, he is the best currently active boxer at any weight. (I'm not considering RJJ to be active)

He had a close victory over Oscar, a bad night against JLC where he may have lost, but he overwhelmingly put matters right in the rematch.

Other than that, he has been very dominant against a good sampling of the best fighters available. To complete his resume, he needs (after Hatton), Mosley, Cotto, Williams, and maybe Spinks.

While he's not universally recognized as the best, most knowledgeable fans and observers put him at the #1 spot.
