Never made my own p4p all time great list.. but I have seen him between 10-20 on many, and I wouldn't dispute it.

He is up there with Robinson, Jones, Leonard in terms of pure ability. One of the best fighters I have ever seen on film.

I'd put Whitaker around #10 for skills & boxing IQ, maybe even higher, but P4P he's quite a ways down the list.
