Some retard attempted to start this thread after I told him to stop making new threads.
This is the only worth while topic out of the 5 threads he attempted before this... so I **** canned it to Trollshido and started this one on my own.


So let me hear it. Who is your pick for the best boxer of all time? Please include video evidence and cookies for Santa. Unfortunately I have not been following professional boxing so ... yeah someone else is going to have to lead.

I have not a deep interest in boxing but i love the style, techniques of a great boxer Muhammad Ali (1942-2016)... (great boxer all the time)

Greatest of all time? Super hard one right there.

Rocky Marciano. Why? 49-0, that's why.

Roberto Duran. Why? 119 total fights with 103 wins.

Sugar Ray Robinson. Why? 200 fights, that alone is enough. But, he also won 173 times.


Those three have my votes, but I can't choose between them.

Sugar Ray Robinson is considered the #1 pound-for-pound fighter in history by the vast majority of prominent figures in the boxing community. Apparently, he's the reason the term "pound-for-pound" even exists.

A question with a less clear-cut answer would be who the greatest HEAVYWEIGHT boxer of all time is.

1.Mike Tyson from 1987

2. cassius clay

3. Larry Holmes

4. Rocky

5. Wladimir Klitschko


Rocky and Wladimir Klitschko would be higher if they had more people to fight.
I suspect Wladimir would beat them all.

Lomachenko is my current favorite.

Hard to say for all time.

Best Boxer: https://img.pokemondb.net/artwork/hitmonchan.jpg


But seriously, what makes a boxer good. Wasn't able to watch any of the videos posted but I know one guy put wins as a reason. But is a guy with say 200-50 who can take a beating (and hence push through for the wins) better than a 15-0 who never gets hit?

Is it heart? Technique? Stamina? A combination of all?

Personally I think heart makes a boxer great.

Also, forgive me as I'm not too big on boxing, but I saw a clip once of an African (?) guy whose name I don't remember (and forgive me if it wasnt a legitimate clip as it was some time ago) who was up in the corner and his opponent was throwing a series of varied strikes and he was bobbing and weaving them all with such grace, speed and fluidity it was beautiful.

Anyway, my 2c...

My personal favorites are.....

Roy Jones Jr. at Middleweight and Super Middleweight. He was fucking spectacular.

Mike Tyson in his prime.

You've blasted Naseem Hamed in the past. So why do you find RJJ to be spectacular, whilst The prince only a cocky showboat?

I fucking hated Hamed back in the day. Despised him. I appreciate him a lot more now. I don't have a good answer as to why Hamed rubbed me the wrong way at the time and Roy didn't. Probably just the way his face looked or something.
