I totally agree with your p4p rankings, Pac is definitely above Floyd. - Neutral

But, I guess you noticed the Floyd votes that are trickling in... rofl
It's easy to be objective when comparing Robinson and Chavez. Chavez doesn't even come close. After winning his first 40 or so, Robinson was unbeaten (a draw or two included) for his next something like 90 after that. He beat better fighters. He beat them earlier and for longer. he was just flat out better.

There are fighters who can challenge the conventional wisdom about Robinson. Chavez isn't one of them.
