the list of past prime fighters that were completely dominated includes

does this say anything about the skills of a fighter?
De La Hoya was dominated by Pacquiao, Marquez was dominated by Mayweather.

Kostya Tszyu was never dominated.

You could argue George Foreman also. Ali was doing way better off-the-ropes than revisionist history would tell you, from round 2 on, but saying he "dominated" Foreman would be a stretch. Young-Foreman was competitive. The Holyfield fight was reasonably competitive, no domination. I haven't seen the Schulz fight in years but from what I remember, Schulz deserved the win but it wasn't a "domination". Briggs got a gift against Big George. Morrison? Ehh, that's the best argument I suppose.

Dawson did not dominate Hopkins. Watch the fight again and tell me how many clean blows he lands on Hopkins. He obviously outworked him but no way was it "dominant" in any fashion.

Tommy Hearns - he did get stopped in one punch by Barkley, but was winning the fight up to that point - Hearns was never dominated

We must have different definitions of what "Dominated" means.

I think of getting "Dominated" like what Foreman did to Frazier, Lewis did to Golota, Vitali did to Kirk Johnson... etc

A person can get dominated a whole fight,but outta nowhere the opponent can land a lucky punch,that's why i say this topic can have different meanings.

Ruiz... I mean yes Tua knocked him out in 30 seconds, but the first 20 seconds he was winning.
