It seems that people put a lot of stake in fighters going undefeated. It means a lot to the fighter and public. But if going undefeated means that you will do anything to protect a flawless record then what does it really mean? Let's take Chavez Jr (Mayweather is next). If he goes undefeated will he be considered a great boxer or a paper champ? Calzaghe went undefeated looking at his record and when he faced his oppenents leaves the fight fan limp. Does Joe Calzaghe deserves the praise of his record? However when you look at it, it is as meaningless as a Vinn Diseal movie. As far as Mayweather goes, early in his career he was taking on everyone. As he went up in age and wins, it seems he has been careful of picking his opponents. Ortiz looked as if he had the tools to knock May out but he was a head case. Oscar just didn't connect, Shane stopped fighting, JMM never had a chance. Now everyone is saying he is afraid of Pac (even though he is smaller and boxing skills are left to be desired) because of his 0 will be put to the test. If May remains undefeated will it be a respected 0 or a 0 that could be scrutinized? Any thoughts. If you would like to add other undefeated fighters that I did not that deserve a look please by any means
RIP Smokin' Joe Frazier aka Ali Killer!
