Default your top 5 boxers with a strong mental

- active boxers who fight at a high level.

My top 5 :

1- Floyd
2- Ward
3- Martinez ( ***y )
4- Froch
5- Cotto

Timmeh

It looked like he nearly died getting 5 years of his life shaved off in the 4th round, but then he came back strong in the championship rounds.

My list isn't too diff just sub out Cotto(e) for Timmeh. Maybe some order rearranging

I give credit to guys who are constantly looking for solutions to break down the challenge.

Many times fighters will stay in there and continue to take punishment, but they're already mentally done. This gets overrated when it comes to mental toughness

Floyd is a tough mofo , a guy with a solid psychic . When he's in big troubles he finds a way to get the job done pretty well !

I don't rate Pacquiao as having a tough elite mental ! Marquez ( 3 times ) and Timmy crack it !

i'm not even arguing about pac. i just mentioned that your criteria and floyd is not really active.

and you're a joke if you include cotto and not pacquiao. pacquiao has never quit in a fight.

I won't say mentally weak, but not the strongest when it comes to following gameplan and yeah, getting bored.
