best wins very close. But better resume, Calzaghe.

People need to give some credit to the longevity of ones career and unbeaten streaks. (as long as you fight someone with a pulse.)

Oliver Mccall arguably have better wins than Wladimir, but is not even close to as great.

Is this inspired from the other thread?

If Dawson beats Hopkins then their resume's are very close.

Which is laughable, really.

Calzaghe didn't fight anyone with a pulse for the majority of his title defenses so the longevity aspect is irrelevant.

Which is the whole point of the debate. You can't seriously consider Calzaghe's win over Jones Jr in any way a good win. As it stands it's usually pointed out as one of Calzaghe's best wins. It's not debatable that Dawson's win over Tarver was a better win on the resume. You also can't equate Oliver McCall's resume to Dawson's so that point is irrelevant.

Well, it's not a win i rate at all. Just like i don't do it for hopkins.

I wasn't. I said it to point out better wins does not always equate a better resume.

I don't feel it's irrelevant.

In the case of Calzaghe and Dawson, it does.

The fact that Dawson is 29 and already has a comparable resume tells you how much of a joke Calzaghe was. Also Calzaghe's win against Byron Mitchel>>>>>his wins over Roy and Lacy
