Since May is back I go with him. His hit and not get hit ratio has got to be off the charts. Bernard gets hit too much now for me because of his age and willingness to engage.

He's asking for two lists...ATG and Current.

Exactly. He kind of explained after his last fight. Saying something along the lines of him being more conservative for a portion of fights because he wanted to preserve himself for a bit, and now go out with a bang.
He has done this very well.

Actually Spyder was referring to the fact that I was hoping to get people to give there top 5 ATG defensive fighter list as well as their active fighters top 5 defensive fighter list.

Nah.

I am surprised that I can't get more people to do 5 man lists.

Good lists.

The reason I did this thread is I started going back and checking out retired boxers again thanks to the thread asking whether Tszyu deserved to be in the IBHOF.

The tough part is choosing the top 5 because there are many great defensive fighters. Most must be left out.

Willie Pep
230(65)-11-1

Nicolino Locche
117(14)-4(1)-14

Carlos Monzon
87(59)-3-9

Muhammed Ali
56(37)-5

Wilfred Benitez
53(31)-8-1

Current- (I just can't consider Toney active)

FMJ

BHop

Chris John

Felix Sturm

Zab Judah


I really like benitez. It was tough for me to exclude him from my list, but archie did too much to be left off.

No doubt Moore is deserving but so are a load of dudes. That's why I started this . . . to see what everybody else thinks. Archie was just amazing but Benitez v Hearns cemented my eternal respect for Wilfred even in a loss.
