I love sweet pea and think he is a great head to head fighter. However, I feel that after ring magazine ranked him in thier top 10 of the last 80 years, his lovefest on the internet has gotten out of control. Modern fighters like roy jones jr, manny pacquaio, floyd mayweather always have thier resume picked apart and destroyed. I honestly think pernell whitaker is the one with a very overrated resume. He fought de la hoya and trinidad at the end of his career, yet pea fans will want you to believe he was fighting these guys in his prime. Pea fans will have you believe he convincgly beat oscar and was robbed, yet I have scored it 7-5 for Oscar, or a draw every time I watched it. The best atg he ACTUALLY beat were nelson and chavez. Nelson did nothing at 135, chavez was still great, but this fight was at 147 and 1993 isnt exactly prime chavez. Buddy McGirt and Vasquez were really good fighters in thier day, but the only reason they get propped up is because they are pernell whitaker opponents, otherwise no one would give 2 cents about either. If Floyd fought them, they would be dismissed as bums. Not to mention the wilfredo rivera debacle, if anything this is the controversial fight. Every time i watched this fight, i have either rivera winning or a draw at best. I cannot imagine mayweather getting a gift against a journeyman, forget about abc champs or very good fighters, rivera is a journeyman! Why isnt pernell getting knocked for this? Even a 37-40 year old mayweather would pick apart any rivera caliber opponent. I have pernell above floyd mayweather and roy jones on my all time list. However, I feel pacuiao is more accomplished and the boxing media will rank him higher once his career is over.
