No one ever outboxed Vitali, although, like Froch, he lost twice.

Froch has a very good resume, but because of LONGEVITY I rate Vitali's resume as better than Froch's.
Longevity is good, and important, but it never, ever replaces who you actually fight. Ray Leonard had a short, stilted career with relatively few fights compared to other top 10/20 ATGs, but its because of his names that he is without any doubt whatsoever up there with the best. It doesn't matter if someone had ten times the wins over twice as long a period, if they didn't fight Duran, Hagler, Hearns and Benitez they're not as good. Simple as that.

Longevity is important only when combined with other things like top fighters. It never beats having top fighters on your résumé alone though.

It's clearly Froch.
