    Marvin Hagler. I never saw him rocked at all except for a few seconds with Hearns.

    That's crazy man. No welterweight in Boxing history is taking those right hands flush by Mosely for as long as Margarito did

    Margarito is certainly a top 5 without a doubt (at least imo..). If I have list, it'd go like this:

    - Jake LaMotta
    - Juan Laporte
    - Antonio Margarito
    - Marvin Hagler

    These are the top 4 IMO..

    A great list. I have GGG somewhere in there too. Never hurt, takes unnecessary shots but it totally unfazed.

    Yes GGG has never looked likely to go down, hard man

    Hagler, Bika, Froch, Lamotta, McColl, Oscar De La Hoya, Ali, McCullough, Toney, Mayweather, Eubank, Collins, Marciano, Monzon, Tunney, and Hopkins all come to mind for having excellent punch resistance.

    Mosely lost some steam on his punches as he went up in weight.
    He wasn't a great puncher at welter and above, theirs quite
    a few welters I can think of off the top of my head that would've
    turned the lights out on Margarito much earlier than Mosely was
    able to.'

    Was Cotto's left hook in the same galaxy of Pipino Cuevas?
    Was Mosely's right hand in the same universe as Hearns?
    Neither Cotto or Mosely are in the upper echelon of great
    punchers in the long illustrious history of the welterweight
    division. Maybe mid level, slightly below.....
