Well, many think (me included) that he was undefeated before the Tito's fight. Depending of course on how you scored his fights against Oscar De La Hoya and Wilfredo Rivera I.

You little cunt, BE already played that card. I'm defenseless to ESB's abuse of my primary.

Sensing a 'Most Skilled - Pea or Floyd' thread.

Pernell Whitaker is one of the greatest fighters of all time. I don't think I would have him in my top ten p4p, but he would be somewhere close.

The thing about Whitaker, though...he had such great defense, seldom got caught solidly, but he is a bit punch drunk nowadays...
