Default Julio Cesar Chavez

I was born in 1991 and only really startted fighting boxing until 2005. I think its often underated as to the importance of living in a certain fighters era, when he's peaking, and getting the general sense of how he is percieved by fans. I for example, by coming on these forums and by watching the fights live, understand how the likes of Mayweather and Pacquiao's dominance are. I wasen't watching the sport when the likes of JCC was dominating.

I have watched his career set and this of course helps with the feeling of how people saw him. We all know how good at blocking shots and stiffling his opponents offence. Yet has there ever been a fighter quiete as dominating as him, on such a huge win streak, winning titles through multiple divisions emphatically, who was essentially a aggressive fighter. I think Pacquiao would come under this category, but who else would. Duran perhaps? The Roy Jones and the likes relied and there speed in my mind to win, not there sheer aggression. To me there is something epseical about beating evrey opponent by essentially outwilling them and imposing your dominance on them. Not just to win a fight- but to try and finish the fight and punish your opponent at all times.

Extremely skilled and underrated in this aspect by some......Not only he was an offensive force but also a versatile guy sometimes.....Love the fight against Ramirez because that shows how good he was fighting with a good gameplan with counter-punches and a great jab, etc....

He was a super tough, badass bastard. I've come lately to appreciate him more.

I hate him because during Tyson's incarceration, Chavez became Don King's bitch, and proceeded to act the part. He became whiny and petulant and altogether insufferable.

That said, he truly is Mexico's greatest fighter. I remember reading an article in KO Magazine back in 1985, right after he wiped out Roger Mayweahter in two rounds, and the title of the article was something like, "Zarate, Sanchez, Olivares...........now Chavez?" as if it were almost too bold a statement to make to put him in such exalted company.

Here we are this many years later and it seems a given that most would rate him clearly above any of them.

Very, very few Lightweights throughout history are beating him over 15 rounds I think. I'd probably only favor 2 or 3.


As to which fighters were like him in this regard...

Marciano might well be the ultimate call.

very dominant. Took a lot to deter him and he made decent fighters like Camacho and Haugen look average fighters.
