Past or Present, the popularity of fighters who've fallin from the top, only to rise back to it, out weighs the significance of the FEW fighters who's records remained Un-beat, yet far more recognition is given to the FLAWED fighters than the FLAWLESS fighter.

Is there something wrong here?

Notably Retired Unbeaten

Rocky Marciano
Joe Calzagie
Ricardo Lopez
Jimmy Barry
Laszlo Papp
Terry Marsh

Notably Retired Greats

Muhammad Ali
Joe Louis
Ray Robinson
Floyd Patterson
Sonny Liston
Willy Pepp
Jack Demsey
George Foreman
Joe Frazier
Mike Tyson
Ray Leonard
Marvin Hagler
Tommy Hearns
Roberto Duran
Julio Ceasar Chavez
Lennox Lewis

Arron Pryor... To name a few

Very valid question. For me it's all about who you fought, when you fought them and how you fought.
