I don't think you can quantify intelligence in that way.

Benny Leonard and Mayweather should be mentioned though.

Joe Gans had more ring savvy than anyone I've ever seen.

If we're talking book smarts, Juan Diaz comes to mind.

Oh, and me, of course.

Both great choices. It's a hard question to answer, very hard.

Mayweather is definitely up there though, no doubt about it.

I've seen a long long list of great fighters in my life time but skill wise and intelligence wise Mayweather is definitely one of the best of my lifetime.

Ray Arcel said it was Benny Leonard, and for 70 years he saw them all.

Besides Gans, Tunney, Leonard, Ali, Mayweather Jr. which I think have all being mentioned,

I want to throw in the idea of the 2nd coming of Foreman being a very smart fighter.

In all due respect to the great Marvin Hagler, his odd strategy in the Leonard fight eliminates him from winning this category.
