    The ultimate welterweight-
    The frame, power, killer instinct and stamina of Felix Trinidad. The defense, footwork, reflexes, ring IQ and speed of Benitez. The chin of Ricardo Mayorga.

    The ultimate Lightweight

    The frame, speed and power of Shane Mosley. The defense, southpaw stance and ring iq from Pernell Whitaker. Chavez’s chin, stamina and inside fighting.

    The ultimate Light Heavyweight
    Roy Jones Jr speed and athleticism. Beterbievs frame, brute strength and power. Kovalevs jab, Bivols ring IQ.


    The ultimate Super Middleweight

    Roy Jones Jr as is, no need for changes.

    Great fighter that Marvin Hearns guy, almost unbeatable. But I saw a guy who would give him a nightmare or two…

    The sheer physical strength and limitless stamina of Carlos Monzon with the punching power and chin of Gerald McClennan. (Tbh I could have used Monzon’s chin I guess, but wanted a bit of an equal balance.)
    Now this guy Carlos McClennan would be a bit of a top boy I think.

    Heavyweight:

    Holmes
    Lewis
    Ali
    Bowe
    Louis
    Holyfield

    Think that covers all fighting distances/ranges, punch variety, punching mechanics, physicalz/athletic attributes & intangibles in a heavyweight, excluding a southpaw but whatevs.

    Was thinking of throwing Liston or Foreman in the mix, but there'd be too much overlap. 5 of the 6 already have all time great jabs, and the physicality of Holyfield mixed with the size and strength of Lewis & Bowe make up for the lack of these guys.

    I would start with the template of Duran.

    I would give him the speed and combos of Medrick Taylor. ( In reality, this is probably the closest we can get to real life Harry Greb )

    Then, to make him unstoppable. Give him the height and power of Iran Barkley.
