    A fighter's resume is the best way of measuring how great they are. What fighters have the best resumes of all time?

    Muhammad Ali (Foreman, Frazier, Norton, Liston, Patterson)
    Sugar Ray Leonard (Hearns, Duran, Hagler, Benitez)
    Salvador Sanchez (Lopez, Gomez, Nelson) Maybe not as many or as great as Ali or Leonard's wins, but Sanchez beat 3 future HOFers by the time he was 23.
    Sugar Ray Robinson (LaMotta, Basilio, Fullmer, Graziano, Turpin)

    Robinson in the 20th century and Pacquiao in the 21th.
    Sanchez has the best track record for a 23 or under 25 boxer.

    I think if he had lived just five more years he would have been the best boxer in history.

    If he had lived, he could have fought and beat Pedroza and Lockridge, then moved up to 130 and fought and beat Limon or Serrano.

    Wins over 4 HOFers, a 2 weight world champion, and an undisputed champion in 2 weight classes (WBC and WBA were the only titles back then) at 24-25. He would have been top 10 all-time.
