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
Parnell Whitaker
Arron Pryor... To name a few

Well I like when a guy faces adversity and can come back from defeat stronger then before, but I mean if your good enough to never even go through that then that speaks multitudes too...

I don't care if a fighter has losses, hbos drunktard once famously said "sometimes were perfect through our imperfections".

If you can overcome your losses than you are truly great, even Jordan says that's why he's so great.
