Going into the De La Hoya fight. Whitaker's true record was 42-0.

With wins wins over Roger Mayweather, Greg Haugen, Jose Luis Ramirez, Azumah Nelson, James McGirt, 87-0 Julio Cesar Chavez(I don't care thats a W), & 53-1 Julio Cesar Vasquez.

He was undisputied Lightweight Champion. He claread the division out & ruled it for 2 years.

He won a strap at 140lb. He then won the WBC Welterweight & near enough cleared the 147lb division out. Ruled the division for 4 years and made 8 defences of his WBC Title.

He then took out Julio Cesar Vasquez who had a 53-1 record. But that loss was by DQ, so techinaclly Vasquez's record was 54-0. Going into the fight Vasquez had made 10 defences of his crown and had dominated Winky Wright.

Whitaker moves up to 154lb and decision him over without much trouble. Amazing stuff, Whitaker still has the build of a 140lb'er.

Chavez was 87-0 and P4P #1. For 12 rounds Whitaker boxed his ears off and lost no more that 4 rounds. And I don't care what people say that is Whitaker W. I belive Don King had paid judges off.

Barney Ross is truely exceptional fighter. But Pernell Whitaker is that bit more exceptional for me. The man was never beaten in his prime and most of the time beats ATG fighters with ease.

I find his accomplishments, skills, more impressive aswell he defeats Ross in a H2H matchup.
