    Depends on who he beat, who he lost to and when. If he lost to 8 top 5 guys and lost 9 past his prime. Those losses are not that bad. If he beat several champs, ex champs, top 10 etc. Pretty good.

    Depends on his fights.
    Example No1 : boxer with record 0-0-0 fought boxer with record 5-2-2 and was blue corner:nonono guy. He get draw.
    Example No2 : boxer A with record 8-1-0 fought boxer with record 10-17 that had lost all his last 7 fights in row. boxer A get win UD on cards.
    By real thinking, it is very big difference in these fights value.
    Fights the boxer had won too might be less valuable than fights that boxer had won.
    Example No1 : boxer ranked #50 th fought with boxer ranked #20 that never had been down for a count. Boxer ranked #50 lost this fight via SD ( split decision ).
    Example No2 : boxer ranked #51 fought with boxer ranked # 250 with record 8-4. Boxer ranked #51 TKOed this opponent.
    Numbers are numbers, question might be who from these boxers looks more dangerous?

    You can't rate a boxer by his record list. That's Floydette logic.

    I copied the record from Leon Spinks`s wiki page but was just throwing his stats out there out of interest, like for instance if a fighter was fighting today and this year had the same record, would he have had a title shot etc.

    I took the stats from Leon Spinks`s record and was making the thread as if a fighter today had that record, any fighter with this record would be nowhere near Floyd`s level.

    If it is meant total career record, then nope, might happen.
    Winning steak, guy might become even world tittle holder or continental pro tittle etc.
    Then he does have high position in rankings, start to loss fights, drops in rankings, still is getting offers because earlier had good record, achiemvments.
    Out of prime formerly high level guy is more lucrative for prospects to beat up than to have young gatekeepr in the ring.
