Tough question, all those fighters obviously deserve credit but in my opinion pacquiao, hopkins and Roy jones deserve the most. Then if you have to pick only 1, it's got to be pacquiao hasn't it. No one will ever do what he done period.

I have to go with Hopkins winning the light heavyweight title at 377 years old. He's not cherry picking, and he's defending the title, which makes the achievement all the more incredible.

Pacquiao is a reasonably close second for me.

I'd say Pacquiao. Hes won a belt in more than half of the divisions in boxing. That is something that'll never happen again

BHop is a close second but I can see Wlad beating his record

Boxers are becoming less skilled as they fight infrequently so I'm not surprised someone old school like Hopkins can beat these rookies at such an old age.

I'd have to give it to pacquiao four lineal championships is always going to look impressive.

Yeah im ok with Hopkins winning the poll, what he did is amazing but still he couldn't have gone to HW and got that WBA belt so that also a great achivement.

I think Pacquaio but I voted Wlad just because it makes people I don't like so angry.
