    Disclaimer: My knowledge of the history of the lower weight classes in boxing is limited. I wanted to know where Inoue ranks pound for pound historically in terms of fighters from 122 and below?

    If you’re comparing Inoue who has fought at 122 an under against other fighters at 122 an under, then what the point of comparing them pound for pound? They are in the same weight divisions. Think people nowadays overuse the term pound for pound so much that they forgotten what it really means an why ithey came up with it in the first place

    Strange.. I saw a video that someone posted on here of amateur Inoue. His footwork looked even better then than it does now.. somehow.. I think it's still there though, but a little less obvious.

    There's a world of difference between 105lbs and 122lbs.

    Jimmy Wilde, around 105lbs in his prime, is the greater p4p fighter of the 2, but likely wouldn't stand a chance against Innoue at 122lbs, for instance.
