Skills are pretty important though. Would anyone rate Ricardo Lopez if you saw his resume? He was a hall of famer because of his amazing skills.
However, he will never be considered one of the greatest, because he doesn't have any big name wins in his career.

If you don't put your skills to the test, how do you know you're great?

you make a good argument, but this isn't a good analogy for boxing.

it doesn't matter who racehorses beat, what matters is their time which is measurable.

boxing doesn't have a measuring stick like horse racing... therefore a boxer's resume is all we've got and if a boxer's resume isn't composed of good to great opposition, its hard to determine how skillful said boxer is.

take wlad and vitaly for example. it's clear that they are very good possibly great, but the opposition available to them makes it hard to categorize them as great.

Huh what do you think punky boys?
Resume does. Its fact. Skill is basically the eye test and open to debate, its subjective...
Tyson for example suffers ATG wise due to resume, Eye test wise he is clearly ATG material

both, but people for some reason value resume more than skills. I think even if you have a lot of losses, you still can be a dangerous, competitive fighter if you have the skills.

people don't value resume more than skills. the only way to measure skills is by fighting the best opponents thus having a great resume.

it's ok to lose to other great boxers. for example there's no shame in cotto losing to pac. its ok to lose to mediocre boxers too (cause sometimes a boxer has off nights, like Lewis to Rahman), as long as you avenge your loss.

you can have all the skills in the world, but if you don't fight against the best, those skills don't mean sh*t. You have the potential to be great, but you are in fact not great.

Resume is proof of one's skills, that is why it is revered so much.
