now you are much more confident that Pac won these 2 fights, even more so than half of the scribes that watched the same 2 fights... the emphatic ending in the 4th fight closes the chapter in my book, no need for the 5th

pretty.confident about.the first fight yeah, still need to rescore II and III. I can see the first fight being being a draw or 114-113 Marquez , but the judge that only gave Pac the 11th round was blind, funnily enough i gave that round to Marquez. i still think pac did enough to win

all those stats.prove is that they were very.close fights that many.people could see either way, they prove as much as people thought Marquez won the fight, the same was thought for Pac, i mean if it was Marquez being awarded the decision we'd be saying Pac lost a controversial decision, or atleast thats all i hear out of hbo, controversial decision this and controversial decision that

QUOTE (mgrover @ May 29 2014, 06:38 AM) *
We constantly hear about Pac and Mayweather resumes, but then boxing lives outside of these guys,

1. Mosley (Or should his entire career be invalidated due to the positive tests?)
2. Cotto
3. Judah
4. Malignaggi
5. De La Hoya
6. Margarito (Or should his entire career be invalidated due to the hand wraps?)

Some justifiation would be good, no point in just listing them off, I'll probably post mine soon

As in who beats who ranking. If they fought 9 times, I'd say that

1. Mosley. Fought everyone except Trinidad. Mosley has prime wins over DLH. The W was never changed to a NC, strangely in their second fight where he stated he took, "something." Did DLH test positive too? Something to think about. Mosley also has a past prime win over a Margarito coming off the Cotto victory.

2. Margarito. DLH, Mayweather and Judah feared him for a reason. His victory over Cotto who had beaten Mosley was about as dramatic and climactic as possible. Also a tough win over a Joshua Clottey, who also had a tough time getting fights due to the "fear." This guy put you through the meat grinder and made a tough fight for everyone. This will always come up when you mention Mayweather's campaign at WW. The hand wraps scandal prior to his loss to Mosley is a blemish.

3. DLH. Fought just about everyone in and around his weight class. Win or lose, each fight was event and competitive. His popularity should not increase his ranking as a fighter. Too often fans boost a popular fighter as the greatest. DLH was a good technical fighter who had all the bells and whistles. Sometimes his popularity got him victories that he didn't deserve. Pernell Whitaker, Ike Quartey and Felix Sturm lost the popularity contest and not their fights with DLH.

4. Cotto. Fought just about everyone too. His win over Mosley was no doubt his biggest win. It was a hard fought, gut win. This guy would be #1 in terms of heart because he fights everyone they put in front of him. The fact that he came up short in so many of those fight's is why he's ranked #4.

5 Paulie. A knuckle ball thrower for 12 rounds. Will never blow by anyone with power, but can box his ass off. Always entertaining. His weakness has always been his lack of power. If this guy could throw credible power shots that made people respect him... He, like Cotto and Judah, was always in the big one, but never won the big one.

6. Judah. All the potential in the world when he was at 140. Tszyu crushed that with a jack hammer to the jaw. Didn't really fight a great list at 147. When he did dabble in the who's who list, he lost. Loss to Paulie, ranks hime below Paulie...

1. ODLH- Gotta put Oscar on the top of this list, hands down. Now, he lost most of the big fights, no secret there, but he has numerous names on resume. He would fight just about anybody, and pretty much did. Mosley, Trinidad, Floyd, Manny, Mayorga, Vargas, Sturm, Hopkins, Gatti. You'd have to ask what those guys did before and after they fought Oscar...along with the special ones who are still excelling afterwards (Manny, Floyd, Hopkins)

2. Cotto - I had to put him above Shane, because its hard to rate a guy who got caught up with PEDs...period. Manny, Floyd, Mosley, Margarito, Judah, and now Martinez...seems legit to me. He may have lost some of the big ones, but he was good enough to drum up interest in the boxing world and make these fights worth mentioning.

3. Mosley - He could've easily made #2 here, but again, that PED situation wont go away any time soon, especially when you're talking about rating him. It's hard to say though, it really is. He fought Forrest twice, Wright twice, Oscar twice, Floyd, Manny, etc...but that PED thing put a damper on a lot.

4. Judah - I wanted to put him down as #3, because of his status as undisputed WW champ status and the fact that his resume is a bit lengthy as well. However, I couldn't put him there, because Shane fought Oscar, and I'm sure he wasn't on anything for their first fight, so having Oscar on your resume, works wonder. Having him on your resume may not make you this HUGE star that you're supposed to be (ask Shane), but Judah, even with accomplishments, didn't become as big as he should've been, so they're somewhat even in a sense.

5. Malignaggi - His resume is a bit lengthy as well. He's been in there with Cotto, Hatton, Khan, etc...the only reason that I'm rating him above Margarito, is because he's been in a champ in 2 divisions.

6. Margarito - He's been in there with Cotto, Mosley, Martinez (whom still competes at the upper echelon of the sport), Manny, Williams, etc. His plaster suspicions are making it a bit difficult to rate him. Lol

1. cotto...3 division champ on his way to being a 4 division champ if he beats martinez. his losses were against the best but had good wins against shane, margarito, clottey and few others.
2. dlh...great wins over quartey and vargas...but had a lot of controversial wins...or wins over guys that were undersized or passed their prime.
3. shane...best win has to be against dlh twice and margarito. also had some other notable wins but dominated at 135. first guy since duran to jump 2 weight classes to win the welter title.
4. judah...dude had nine lives and his list of opponents looks like a who's who over the last 15yrs.
5. malignaggi...2 division champ....able to resurrect career. lost to decent fighters.
6. margarito....piece of shit cheating muhfucka who deserved the ass whooping he got. fuck him.
