Default Do you have Whitaker inside your Top 20 ATG List

or where abouts do you have him.

Second part of the question... Do you have him inside the top 10 based on boxing skills alone.

On ability sure, but his resume does not warrant it at all and i love the guy.

Skillwise I have him in my top 3.

Greatness wise I'm not sure where I have him to be honest.

I'd like to think he can crack my top 20 but I haven't listed for so long.

As an acid test, how does he compare to canzoneri?

Top 25.

He's with the absolute elite in terms of how impressive he is on film. I think I'd have 3 guys above him in that regard.

Hell yes. I mean to find 20 fighters better than he was is quite challenging.

People have guys like Benny Leonard above him. Whitaker would embarrass Leonard and anyone he faced with the exception of maybe Ross

Leonard never fought Ross. Maybe you meant McLarnin?

He's firmly in my top 20, probably around 15/16.

Credentials:

1.) My fourth rated lightweight behind Duran, Leonard, and Gans.
2.) strap at 140 by stopping very solid Pineda
3.) My number 7 welterweight.
4.) Took a strap from very tough JC Vasquez at 154.

That's no doubt a top 20 resume and his jaw dropping ability and head to head prowess bumps him up another 5 spots.
