Default Who would have the best resume ?

Take any fighter in history. Make his resume a winning one from start to finish. Consider he fought the best version of every fighter. Who has the most impressive wins ?


Example : Frans Botha

Lewis
Wladimir
Tyson
Briggs
Holyfield
Moorer
Schulz

So it's just heavyweight? P4P, Canzoneri would be a shout. Heavyweight, Foreman wouldn't be a bad shout. Ali, Frazier, Norton, then coming through with Holyfield later? He'd have swept the GOAT era, come back and beaten one of the best guys from one of the common picks for second-best era too. And those are just wins from the highest level.

If Benny Leonard didn't sucker punch Jack Britton the result likely would have been Leonard KO 13, and the welterweight championship. Ad that win to the rest of his resume. It would be very hard to beat. There is also his last fight with McLarnin that he lost.
Someone who could beat it is Ray Leonard. Had he won the decision over Duran in their first fight. Beaten Hearns in their second fight. Than Noris and Camacho. I think the gaps between 82-84 and 84-87 hurt Ray Leonard's resume status.

Damnable Scots gibberish of some kind.

Under this criteria Jake LaMotta would have six wins over Sugar Ray Robinson, wouldn't he?

Beating the GOAT six times basically trumps everyone else I would say.
