Pernell Whitaker

Not only do I think he was the best defensively out of the three, but I think he was the most complete as well.

At the height of his career, Pep was peerless. It went beyond watching a boxer; it was seeing a virtuoso on a Straivarius.

Whitaker and Pep.

Mayweather's defense is better than Benitez or Toney's defense and worse than Pep's and Whitaker's, but it must be said that he is much better in attack.
