Duran had a very under rated defence but for me Pep with an honourable mention to Whitaker.
Mayweather has the skills but would like to see him use them against someone for who he needs a defence.

Even though Mayweather Jr. And Whitaker are probly some of the best defencive fighters of all time you gotta give props to guys like Nicolino Locche and Willie Pep for making defencive fighters what they are today.

From a heavy weight prospective, Jack Johnson looks pretty impressive on film. Fast feet that he used to keep out of range with

Ali was also very good at avoiding punches in his youth. Low hands but great head movement and lateral movement

For blocking punches and protecting key parts of body & head - Mayweather & Moore

For lateral movement - Pep

For body movement/using waist and height - Whitaker
