Your comedic career may take off afterall. Next you're gonna tell me he is just as good defensively as Whitaker cuz he showed some head movement against Barrera.

This is really a dumb question, there were a lot of fighters that were really fast and others that were really slow. You can say that Muhammad Ali was the fastest heavyweight, but fastest fighter among all divisions? Probably not. So it's really hard to tell who's the fastest fighter ever, and at the same time it doesn't really matter.

People say Jones is faster, perhaps he is in someways.

But you have to consider when Joe Calzaghe throws a combination, time actually slows down for everyone and everything around him but not for Joe himself. You don't even realise it is happening.

When Calzaghe throws a combination Roy Jones slows down. Seeing as time is all relative and stuff, I gave my vote to Calzaghe.

BTW, PBF is fastest "runner".

Seriously, I think for me it's Ali.
As a heavyweight he is fast.
