Has there ever been a more relaxed, naturally confident fighter?

He's the greatest defensive technician i've ever seen & without doubt one of the most under apprieciated boxers of the modern era. He's got it all & some. When flomo's squeal & yap about Floyd's boxing skills i always refer to the true master of the art who'd take mayweather to school

Mayweather is a very poor mans Pernell Whitaker

Mayweather laughs and smiles when he gets hit.

Pernell doesn't get hit. There's a difference.

How is sweat pea underrated though? both older and younger posters seem to think he is awesome and rank him very high.
How was he viewed in the 90's? did they love him or was he viewed as boring because he would most likely cruise to a easy ud?

Most certainly one of the greatest regularly filmed fighters in all of history.

From about the mayweather fight to the vasquez fight he was on another level to everyone he fought and was sensationally dominant.

Past prime efforts v rivera, hurtado and de la hoya were fantastic and enough to cement his legacy as an atg.

He never lost until he was completely shot against tito and even then he put up a valiant effort. He got clearly defeated but most of the rounds were competitive.

Had he beaten a prime tito i'd be debating right now whether or not he was as great as roberto duran.

I think as far as natural talent goes, pea is above jones jr.

Why exactly do people rate Duran so highly?
