    Default Who is the best boxer of all time?


    If you are talking about all time then its a difficult choice but of my generation i would have to say Floyd Mayweather JR. He has all the skills and is a great fighter. I'm glad he's coming out of retirement to fight again. Who is your best fighter of all time?

    I love me the heavy weights so I will to have to go with the Champ "ALI"..

    The wickest punchers to go with him... Mike Tyson in his hay day (what a brutal uppercut he had) and George Foreman's grill...

    Surgar Ray and Marvin Haggler were my 2 favorite non heavy weights...

    Can't go back to really judge Rocky Marciano, Joe Louis or Jack Dempsey.. But Joe Louis had 1 bad ass right hand... Marciano's 49 wins (43 KO's) and 0losses puts him up with the top dogs no doubt.. I had a Jack Dempsey fish when I was a kid.. That thing was bad ass...

    I made a lot of $$$ betting with him everybody hated him when he first hit ABC Sports he was arrogrant ( confident) and everyone bet against him hoping to see him lose I could see his intelligence and the way he played with his opponents So I made Money.

    I'm still going with Holmes. I used to love him wipe his big nose with his glove and then jab the hell out of his opponents. He had a hell of a punch.

    Man it is hard to pick, I don't think anyone dominated their division like Tyson, maybe Roy Jones Jr. before he got old. Ali was awesome, but he lost because the division was stacked then. Rocky Marciano never lost, can't exclude him and what about Joe Louis?

    Sugar Ray Leonard was another educated boxer and a good puncher.
