Default Who of these possesses the greatest ring intelligence?

Hey guys,

Just wondering which one of the following fighters in your opinion possesses the greatest ring intelligence:

Jones Jr.
Hopkins
Mayweather

*No wise crack comments like "if Jones was so smart, he wouldn't still be fighting".

Hopkins he doesnt possess the athletic abilitys that Jones or Mayweather have but he compensates that with his intelegence.

Agreed. It's part of the reason Hopkins has remained so tough through his late 30's and into his 40's.

hopkins knows how to adapt to the situation, like bladerunner said he doesn't have the athletic ablities of jones or mayweather but he makes up for it with his intelegence.

I would say Hopkins, Mayweather, then RJJ. As stated above Hopkins makes up for his lack of talent (compared to PBF) by ring knowledge. Plus its hard to put a guy like PBF at #1 when he is such a nutball. That guy has more than one screw loose. lol
