Default Best pure boxer?

Who are some of the best pure boxers in the sport? Guys who outbox their opponents and win decisions?

You do realize that winning by decision has nothing to do with pure boxers

Mayweather was, he has slipped a bit. Ward will take that mantle if he ever fights again. Those 2 stand above all others in terms of pure boxers.

I remember watching Ivan Calderon when he first started and I that was the purest boxer I've ever seen live…smooth, crisp and technically sound. Of course he's not everyones cup of tea but his abilities were poetic.

pute boxer imo is someone who doesn't run,clinch or use barely any fouls, they are also very highly skilled in defense and offense and can fight in the pocket

Lomachenko is the best pure boxer around today, GGG,Kovalev, rigo, frampton,gonzalez, Inoue and maybe Crawford are the best pure boxers around today

in the past i would have said toney,whittaker
