    1.most world champions beaten in boxing history
    2. One of 6 fighters to win titles in 5+ divisions
    3. Retired tied for most Lineal titles in boxing history
    4. Beat the #1 fighter at least twice in 4/5 divisions
    (130-Genero/Diego/135-Castillo 2x/147-Baldomir/Mosley/Pacquiao/154-Canelo/Cotto)
    5.Retired Unified champ at Welter(WBA,WBC,WBO) and jr middle(WBC&WBA) at the same time
    6. Is only fighter in welter history along with Errol Spence to unified 3 titles and take the title off 3 different champions
    Ain’t no comparison from Baldomir(technically Judah*) in 2006 until Pacquiao in 2015 every fighter he fought was top 3 and a Champion or title holder.

    The stats look great.

    In reality, they’re not as great as what you believe them to be.

    If you truly believe that sports science has nothing to do with the evolution of performance by boxers and athletes in general, then you truly are a know nothing little c u n t

    You said Floyd was the only great fighter to retire undefeated, and I said ever heard of Rocky Marciano.

    Yes, sports science can aid a boxer if he takes full advantage of it.

    It is however only a factor, and one which can’t win him a fight.

    Fights are decided upon by skills, and how the fighters match up stylistically on the night.

    There hasn’t been any evolution in the sport since it’s early roots.

    There’s many fighters of years gone by who’d be able to beat today’s guys.

    You’re a real genius aren’t you Johnny.

    It’s such a pleasure to have you here.

    Where would you rank Floyd if he beat Casamayor and Freitas at 130, Dorin and Spadafora at 135, Harris, Tszyu and Hatton at 140, Pacquiao in 2011, Bradley in 2012, Canelo without a catchweight in 2013, and Thurman and Brook in 2014?
