Problem is...everyone that was meant to trouble pbf has been schooled....and the truth is...as time goes by, training improves, skills improve etc...he is a dick but probably the GOAT...and will remain that way until someone beats him...I keep copying his left shoulder defence too and it needs real skill to slip and counter like he does Phone Post 3.0

Yep ^^^ I've seen two fighters spar that left me in awe, Pernell Whitaker and Floyd Mayweather, and for the better half of my life I lived seven or so miles from the original Kronk gym, I've seen a lot of boxers. Floyd was amazing, Whitaker was unreal. Phone Post 3.0

That left shoulder defence and counter would be too much for anyone...the only one with a chance is SRL and he won't be as quick Phone Post 3.0

Lol @ training & skills improving. In your wildest dreams, can you imagine a nearly 40 former Middleweight moving up to Heavyweight and whipping Ali, Frazier or Foreman? Because an old school trained James Toney (who turned pro at 154lbs) did just the equivalent of that a few years ago.

Ask Freddie Roach if he believes he's HALF the trainer Eddie Futch was. Who out there now compares to Georgie Benton or Ray Arcel? Does Teddy Atlas or Kevin Rooney match up with Cus? And consider that Cus was considered a bit of a kook in his day.

Diet & Nutrition have seen advances but we have maybe 20% of the pro boxers we had 40 years ago. Nor is our amateur pool even a fraction of what it once was. No way a limited guy like Zab Judah wins multiple titles in boxing's heyday. These guys today have the same physical talents but they've not lived through the same hard times, nor have they fought their way through the same shark infested waters of the ammies or faced anywhere near the level of competition as an up and coming pro.

Well thought out and partly true...but a bit nostalgic...I have traned amateur for 10 years and the evolution has been epic...no disrespect to the old school or anyone, but good trainers have evolved Phone Post 3.0

At the end of the day Leonard outworks Floyd, Duran walks him down and probably KO's him, Hearns shows him what it feels like to get hit with a real jab en route to a win, prime Oscar decisions him, and finally Pryor & Whitaker are both toss ups. I think Mayweather does well against the rest of the list which puts him somewhere in the bottom half of the top 10. Phone Post

Of course it is nostalgic, he is referencing boxing 30 years ago. You said you have "traned" for 10 years so are you talking about the evolution since 2003? Phone Post

Just an FYI, I got the chance to watch Pernell train in Virginia, I spent about 3 years in the Virginia Beach area in the mid 80's, if Whitaker was ever at Kronk I have no knowledge of it. I also seen a couple of Pernell's fights in Virginia. Mayweather being from Michigan is a no brainer. Phone Post 3.0

Read some outside the ring Duran stories from some of his friends, training partners, cornermen, etc.. He was (is) a true one of a kind. He'd bought himself a small plane and flew it around Panama despite not being licensed. Plane goes down in the ocean miles from shore and Duran thinks: "This is it." As the plane fills with water, he changes his mind. Tells himself: "I'm Duran. I'm the Champion and can't die like this!" and swims to shore. Shortly after Duran beats Davey Moore he and Ray Arcel (I think) are leaving Gleason's just as then up and coming Jr. Middle Tony Ayala is walking up to the door with Lou Duva. Duva and Ray talk for a good ten minutes while Tony and Roberto stand about 3' apart and stare silently at each other. Neither one blinked nor said a word the whole time. Other witnesses said it was the most intense staredown they'd ever seen. Phone Post

Hatton beats Hearns?

Hatton had his hands full with Urango, got bearly killed by Manny and ducked Witter.

He was a monster.

Unreal power.

Nigel Benn, G-Man & Nunn were awesome to watch at that weight, too.

marlon starling could win a decision vs. Floyd,

honeygan, and hearns could KO him

hawk pryor and RAS-I bramble would make floyds face a mess, but he might get a decision if it went the distance

Marlon Starling vs. Floyd would be interesting but boring. They'd each try to wait the other out.
