Default Mike McCallum or Ricardo Lopez, who is more skilled?

Two amazing boxer-punchers and technical wizards. Based on pure skills alone who do you think is more skilled out of the two? And how do you rate both of their skills?

Exceptioal fighters both, HOF ers and I don't use that term very easily. Lopez retired undefeated and was as dominant as any fighter in history. He didn"t have much competition though. McCallum had a great career and probably fought the better compitition, but didn't always beat them. Close call but for me it would be Lopez.

Lopez could do it all. Box, brawl had a good defence.

But I'd say I think McCallum was overall more skilled.
He's one of those guys who got craftier and craftier throughout his career.
Like Duran and James Toney.

Id say Lopez,although im not sure if he would have looked quite as perfect had he faced the quality of opposition McCallum did,he certainly would have been more tested anyway,doesnt detract from his brilliance though,not for me anyway
