[QUOTE=yoshik;18432981]Well, they would then have to consider number of years in the sport, and Pac Man would own that in terms of competition with Horn dead last. This is a fair assessment and at least an objective way to try…

[QUOTE=aboutfkntime;18432918]yea, true also, who cares what your batting average is at the start of your career..... when you have put in 10 years at the top level, then those stats may count for something Crawford has never fought at welter.....…
