He beats Pryor all day and and all night. Chavez if the tricky one, id say Tszyu ranks as a good number 2.


Though Ricky hasnt retired yet....

Definitely behind Pryor and Chavez...no better than 3 and no worse than 5. Pryor v Tszyu would be a killer fight.

I have him as #3 behind Pryor and Chavez. But in a head to head matchup, I think he matches up favorably against either of them.

Tszyu would box the crap out of Pryor, who was great to watch but not in Tszyus calibre when talking about technique and overall boxing ability. I see Aaron get picked to peices and walking into hard straight rights.

Tszyu wide UD.

Have you guys forgotten about the likes of antonio cervantes, nicolino locce and barney ross. Yes ross spent a vast majority of his career at 140.

Vince Phillips in his prime wasn't mediocre.

I have him number 3 (behind Chavez and Pryor).

In a head to head matchup with Pryor, he gets destroyed.
