Know nothing about boxing you just churn out the same rugurgitated crap everyone says to make it look like you are knowledgable. I'm not saying Conn is definately no. 1 just trying to spark a debate if he could be rated that high. If people like you looked at things from different angles u might learn a thing or 2.

He lost the fight. How could it be the single greatest performance?

I think it would be more of a debate if it was a question of rating Conn as the #1 LHW...

One would certainly be able to make more of a case for that argument than p4p...

Even if that was the argument/question, he still falls short at LHW. Conn isn't in most people's top 5 LHW, so how could he be considered as a top p4p'er?

Which views are humorous friend?

If you wanna spark debate, don't pick such a shitty topic.

Actually the OP makes a good point, thinking about it Don Curry looked to be a Welterweight on par with Sugar Ray Robinson at times and Lloyd Honeyghan just came in and completely dominated him. I mean has there ever been a better performance that that? I'm moving Lloyd to my P4P no1 of all time

I don't rate Calzaghe or Eubank that high smitty (iPhone wants to autocorrect to snotty, which is apt)

To be fair if you have been in a ring you really should have learnt some rudimentary defensive skills first, so you know didn't get completely brain damaged and post shit posts like these
