That's near as good as it gets.

I want to add Salvador Sanchez and peak Wilfredo Gomez to the fore. Unfortunately many have not witnessed Gomez in the days when he could box as pure as crystal. Unbelievable boxer/puncher who had one big prob, he had Sanchez to go thru when rising in weight. He was actually declining when the great Azumah Nelson stopped him.
