    Floyd Mayweather, Jr is #1 by far

    Followed by Sweet Pea Whitaker, then the rest.

    Whitaker in his prime made world class fighters look like amateurs

    Floyd Mayweather: My health come first, you live to far to fight, we not fighting to see who the best is...try hitting that because you can't #1 defense

    Pep, El Radar, Mayweather, Whitaker, Locche, Toney in his prime, Ali in his prime,...

    Klitschko doesn't get touched very often. Lara's jab - run/ feint - run combos were very efficient against Canelo.

    Sumbu Kalambay is the man here. Pep ran more.

    Whitaker was poetry but could be tagged hard, and Mayweather. Toney was better. Herol Graham was incredibly awkward to get into range and time. In terms of blocking, Marlon Starling was wonderful, and Michael Watson.
