Default Which boxer is hardest to beat currently?

Wlad seems to be a league above the others, but one punch can change all of that. Mayweather used to be extremely hard to beat, but I think he's slowed down quite a bit the last few years. Same for VK. Bradley is good but not unbeatable (Pac did it according to most).

As much as I dislike the man, I don't see Ward losing to anyone soon. Certainly not at 168. Too skilled, too much ring IQ and always the hometown edge.

For me ward currently has that Ora of Immortality about him.

I was going to go with Floyd, but then i thought back to his last fight.

When he fought Cotto i was watching it going "man hes Sloppy". I expect nothing but near perfection from Floyd, and that simply wasnt it.

I don't believe Vitali is in this discussion anymore at all. Not after this year. Froch? Very good fighter, but he never belonged in one of these discussions. I still think a Kessler rematch is a toss-up.

wlad is a great fighter operating in a less than stellar division, so he's not getting beaten anytime soon.

andre ward has already dominated the elite in his division, no reason to think he'll lose to any of them the second time around, especially since he seems to be perfecting his craft.

floyd's simply head and shoulders above the rest.

Mayweather and Vitali are aging but i still think there's no one there that can beat them.

Of those in the poll I fancy Martinez could beat Mayweather and 154

Nobody is beating the Klitschko's anytime soon

Bradley is beatable as Pacquiao proved and I fancy some of the other guys in and around 147 could handle him.

Nobody is beating Ward unless he moves up to Cruiserweight and then probably not either (only one I'd give a hope too between 175 and 160 is GGG)

Martinez is'nt that invincible. Chavez Jr nearly stopped him in the 12th and Macklin was leading on points until quite late in the fight.

Broner should beat anyone at lightweight but at 140- different story

Marquez can be beaten. I wouldn't write off someone like Guerrero, Rios or Matthysee beating him.

Froch will lose a rematch with Ward most likely.

Donaire deserves a mention too- even though his weight class and the one above is loaded he's a league above.
