    Usyk number 1 and Canelo number 2 (despite I thought he lost to Lara and both GGG fights) - they have clearly the best resumes in my opinion.

    I don't think he is quite there, but you make a lot of good points.

    His best name is Donaire and that was a brutal tough fight, though.

    I think someday, but not yet.

    Donaire was clearly still very good in that fight

    Inoue might arguably be better, but Canelo and Usyk are undoubtedly greater.

    #1 Usyk
    #2 Canelo
    #3 Debatable but probably Inoue

    Dasmarinas (early KO, didn't lose a round)
    Maloney (KO, didn't lose a round)
    Donaire (Inoue survived some monster shots and a broken eye socket in the second round, but otherwise dominated)
    Rodriguez (early KO, didn't lose a round)
    Payano (early KO, 2 punches thrown)

    Inoue's been far more dominant. And he's done it with zero shenanigans and relying only on pure boxing.

    Yes, granted, Inoue's been more dominant. But Canelo and Usyk have done more. Both Canelo and Usyk have become undisputed champions.

    It's about timing and available opportunity. Inoue will KO Casimero and Donaire/Gaballo winner.

    Donaire and Casimero are far more dangerous a path than Saunders, Plant, Smith. And at least equal to Gassiev, Bellew, and Breidis.

    Little strange to be calling Donaire old at 36, when both Floyd and GGG were 36 when Canelo lost to them.

    Not strange at all. Everybody claims that Floyd and GGG were past their prime when they fought Canelo and Donaire seems to be in that same phase-past prime but still a decent fighter.

    Nonito dropped back down to his best weight class where he hits hardest and where he's a weight bully.

    Ryan Burnett, Stephen Young, Inoue, and Oubaali — Nonito has shown that his speed is still there and his power is still devastating. He also boxes more instead of relying solely on his power.

    36 years old is considered old for boxers btw Donaire was 37.

    That's when you see decline in terms of reflexes, timing and out put. Look at GGG and Donaire they can't pull the trigger as quick as before. Void is getting hit cleaner at this age because he is no longer as fast cerebral as before. These guys are champions for a reason even at that age continue to defy the odds and show that quality that set them apart from the rest..

    Exactly, I wouldn't say 36 is necessarily shot to pieces if you haven't taken loads of damage, if you have good fundamentals you can still be 70% of your prime at 36
