Default Is sergio martinez the most athletic white boxer ever?

Hey guys,

Do you think that Sergio (of Spanish and Greek decent) is the most athletic white boxer ever? If not, who do you think is?

In recent times Hatton was much more gifted , much quicker reactions. But not a better boxer.

Why because he speaks Spanish? White people speak all kinds of languages. You don't have to be American to be white! America didn't invent the white race and has only been around for 236 years. You're telling me if they ran his DNA it would not come back European?

Latin is not a pure race. Latin people are either white or a mix of white and native American (Asian) and sometimes black (i.e many Puerto Ricans, Brazilians depending on the family genes) He is of Spanish and Greek decent (both countries are in Europe and thus he is white/caucasian). Don't be thrown off by the language he speaks or the fact that he lives in Argentina. I am talking about his DNA.

Just because someone's skin is white doesn't make them a white person. I mean, Cotto's pretty white, and he's Puerto Rican.
