Default More skilled: Pernell Whitaker or Ricardo Lopez?

Lopez and Whitaker are 2 of my all time faves, but often times I wonder who was the more well rounded fighter of the 2. In your opinion, who do you think displayed better boxing skills? Who was better at fighting against all kinds of styles? And who is the more overall skilled, versatile fighter between these 2 excellent technicians?

Very tough if you ask me.

Whitaker did not use technique, and he fought one way. He just had the athleticism to make it work for him.

Pernell Whitaker is by far more skilled, it's not close at all. Especially his in-fighting and defensive skills are at whole new level to Finitos.

Pernell Whitaker. When looking back at his resume, he took on fights that fighters nowadays wouldn't even consider. He took on "high risk, low reward" fights especially later into his career.

And what always gets underrated about him is that when he entered his 30's, he was going toe to toe and standing in the pocket with his opponents despite being at a significant size and power disadvantage. He is as close to a complete fighter as they come.

You mean like fighting Nelson and Chavez above their weight class?
