The clear favorite for this is Mayweather, has it all the man realistically is at the top of everything in the sport, well more or less. But is there anyone that can rival him? Not quite sure how far to stretch this era of boxing really. I mean the era is obviously ending

To me guys like bhop an mayweather are obvious choices but I will always lean toward the guys who had to do it the hard way and couldn't pick and choose opponents. Guys like marquez and Martinez (no secret I'm a big Martinez fan). I just love how they didn't let their losses/robberies get in their way of getting to the top and not only to get there but to win fights against the odds against judges/promoters against top competition. But I guess you can call those more along the lines of peoples champs or underdogs

The thing that is really hurting Martinez is having that Legendary fighter on his list, he has some decent A-Lister's but nothing that says HOF at the top levels which is why I believe he needs to move up or fight Andre Ward at a CW or at the very least call him out much in the way that he did with Floyd and Pac.

Martinez is a great fighter but needs to think about moving up, not calling ou those little guys and then he will move his name up in the stakes but still not be on par with BHop or Floyd.
