Default Pernell Whitaker fans, where do you rate him P4P all time?

What is the main reason why you rate him this?


Options:
1-10
11-20
21-30
31-40
41-50
If he's outside your top 50, I don't care for your pathetic opinion.

Chavez
De La Hoya (arguably)
Nelson
McGirt (x2)
Vasquez
Ramirez (x2)

Considering he could be as high as #1 in terms of ability and skills displayed on film for me, probably somewhere near the bottom of the top 20-25.

Got a pretty strong case for 90s fighter of the decade and is the last Undisputed LW Champ, if that means jackshit to you.

Somewhere inside the top 25.

In terms of being the flat out best I've ever seen in boxing, he's probably #4.

I've had him all over 15-30. I think he's arguably anywhere in there.

Default Re: Pernell Whitaker fans, where do you rate him P4P all time?

im not a big fan of compiling ATG P4P lists but as far as 135-147 goes

Robinson

Leonard
Hearns

Whitaker

Duran

De La Hoya
Trinidad

Mayweather
Marquez
Pacquiao

Cotto
Margarito

Tszyu
Chavez

and before the flomos and pactards chime in with their all mighty butt hurt De La Hoya and Trinidad in their primes would be too big for them, As for Duran-Whitaker its a close call but Duran quit because Leonard was schooling him in the rematch, just imagine the hissy fit vs Whitaker (also never was a big Chavez fan on the technical side of things although prime 4 prime Tszyu-Chavez would be close)

Closer to 21 than 30, though.

Well we do, but mostly because I make it that way purposely rather than real conviction or disagreement.

Top 15. Most skilled fighter of the last 30 years without question.
