I know, I'm probably known as a Jone hater even though I felt he was very exciting. I just don't see how people can claim he's so skilled when he just lost a step and proved his skills were never where they needed to be.



Salvador Sanchez did a lot of the little things right for his age.

SRR is probably the best ever. He could twinkle to the right when he needed too. That's something very few fighters could do like he did.

Jones didnt loose until he was 35 years old. Go look at all of the greats from the past and tell me how they performed at 35 and older. SRR, SRL, Ali, all of them.

How old were freaking Hagler and Marciano when they permanently retired?

I think you are arguing something which has little to do with skills.

Well Jones was pretty sensational for well over a decade. His reflexes and chin had to go sometime. He is as skilled as I've seen a boxer.......but there are so many others too; Robinson, Pep, Charles, Ali, Leonard....

The most skilled fighter you've ever seen?
probably Sugar Ray Leonard.
To those who mentioned Pernell Whitaker: I kinda agree, but: his defensive moves include a lot of bending below the waist, which is basically illegal. So I have to go with SRL

For me it has to be Pernell Whitaker. In his prime he had exceptional hand and foot coordination combined with perfectly timed head movement. He could look at any given fighter and anticipate the next two punches they would throw. He was basically two moves ahead of his opponent. One thing that stands out is his ability to counter fighters at their own pace. So he would evade the punch at the same speed it was thrown and then counter back. To be honest the stuff is getting too technical for me to describe further haha.

Since fighters at smallest weight classes have a natural advantage in moving their body effectively compared to heavyweights, it makes sense to list them separately. At heavyweight I pick Muhammad Ali.





Who I have actually watched live: Pernell Whitaker, Floyd Mayweather jr.


Who I have watched on film: Willie Pep. Muhammad Ali, Roberto Duran, Sugar Ray Leonard.
