Gamboa is 31 and has no big wins of note. None. He'd have to fight and beat 7 or 8 world class fighters from here on in to even have a shot at being thought of as an ATG, and that's not going to happen.

Your standards must be very low if you think either fighter is close to even being HOF worthy, nevermind being ranked as one of the greatest fighters of all-time.
I'm pretty confident that Martinez will end up in the HOF, assuming he doesn't fall apart before he retires. Less worthy fighters than him are already there. ATG is another story of course.

For me, Martinez would have to take out Geale and Golovkin plus the winner of Froch-Kessler, / or plus Ward and probably a name like Mayweather and/or maybe Canelo in a couple years if he moves up to 160, to be considered for ATG status.

I have three favorites who I most enjoy watching, and they might be All-Time Greats. I am not sure if people talk about them here.


The Master of Aggression

Freddie "The Tacoma Assassin" Steele
Fantastic footwork with blistering left hook attacks, often with knockdowns as a result. His right cross against the body was debilitating, and his right hook against the head was extraordinary. His combinations against the body were not the fastest or the best, but they were still effective. Just a delight to watch his explosive attacks. Unfortunately, he suffered a cracked breastbone when only 24 years old, an injury that wouldn***8217;t heal. He fought a few times with the injury before retiring only 25 years old.



The Master of Combinations

Walker ***8220;Ray Robinsson***8221; Smith Jr
Great at adapting to his opponents different styles. Excellent footwork and a devastating uppercut. Intense and fast combinations, an effective jab and a very good right hook and cross. A joy to watch the diversity of his craft.



The Master of Defence

Charley Burley
An extremely defensive fighter who managed to tame his opponents***8217; aggression with his fine defensive techniques. Just a pleasure to watch such artistic, innovative and ingenious defence. However, one of his fights was stopped in the tenth round by the referee because of inactivity, and the match was claimed a Non Contest Fight, so his terrific craft wasn***8217;t appreciated by everyone.
