    Marvin Hagler. Even had a successful acting career. Always seems humble & took on everyone & beat virtually everyone handsomely.

    Probably Harry Greb if I had to pick a guy.

    His record is simply insane.

    See I don't rate Bowe's skills all that high he was outboxed from the outside by an average Golota I think his poor training habits mean he never truly progressed as a heavyweight and had no choice but to mix it up on the inside as he could not keep smaller men off of him due to his lack of skills on the outside.

    Ortiz blatantly head butted Floyd & was rightly docked a point despite Cortez ignoring Floyds elbow smashes like always which let to Ortiz retaliation. Cortez NEVER signalled box on so what Floyd did was a cowardly illegal act & he should have been DQ'd.
    Yes Judah hit Floyd low & again he was docked a point but Roger lost it jumped in ring & attacked Judah. That is an automatic DQ when a cornerman enters the ring illegally.
    Both are DQ's for anyone else but the cash cow The NSAC made sure his bogus 0 was safe They were blatant corruption

    I just comment on what I believe to be right & just in the sport & what the NSAC & Vegas boxing officials was neither right or just in my opinion there was no hate involved that is just the classic answer you lemmings come up with when you know youre WRONG!!

    Take no offense, as I said. It was not my intention.

    I said it because it's obvious that you have much more to offer talking about boxing than plain hate . And for me it's a pity that sometimes we lose the things that you can offer here because you cant help but to hate on floyd or canelo.

    And, man, that's hate, hahahaha, you cant deny it. That's fine, though. This is a sport, it's cool to be a fan. I am too.

    I appreciate your comments on other subjects, though :thumbsup:

    But when it comes to mayweather and canelo.... that's hate XD

    I have no problem with that though, as I said. We all here have our philias and phobias. After some time we get used to it, and we can read the comments inside a context. :)

    Its just that I have no respect for any fighters that Bend or even break the rules & yet get no reaction from the State Commissions other than
    "Mr Mayweather did nothing wrong" When the whole boxing world know he broke THREE of the State Commissions own rules regarding saline treatment for suspected dehydration. Its wrong!!!! No matter who it is that did it

    A legacy is what you leave behind.

    Are you asking which of the above is the most respected, or garners less criticism?

    A legacy is based on a fighters accomplishments and the impact that they had on the sport.

    Their footprint.

    Joe Calzaghe was a great fighter, but one who actually has a poor resume for a man of his talent.

    He didn’t achieve enough to have a better legacy than many other fighters from that list.

    It doesn’t matter if the other guys have losses or that they garner hate from fans of the guys they’ve beaten etc.

    A knowledgeable fan will be objective and rank a fighter under traditional criteria.

    Joe Calzaghe hasn’t got a legacy like Floyd, Manny or Ali.

    He spent 10 years holding a lightly regarded WBO belt, where he often fought title defences against European level opposition.

    He can’t possibly rank as high or be as respected as what those guys are.

    Are you thinking of Sven Ottke?

    He didn’t duck Dariusz.
