    Rory is a great fighter but he isn't a better boxer than colon lol. Cogar is the only one really.

    Anderson to start. Actually won some boxing matches and looked like a boxer while doing it.

    I have to see more of Cody but I'm starting to think he MIGHT be

    Conor only has a really good left straight, most of his other punches aren't great. If you don't think Mousasi is a better boxer, you're high.

    Masvidal and Tumenov are both better boxers. Bibert Tumenov; Albert's cousin, is a part of Russia's national boxing team iirc - that trumps all of Conor's boxing achievements.

    I really doubt Masvidal would outbox Bang. Bang actually has amatuer boxing background. Masvidal couldn't do shit with his hands other than that massive knee I think that landed, but hey, it was what like 8 years ago or so that I watched that fight

    Ali was absolut
    Ali absolutely did NOT get beat up worse by Joe Frazier. That was a war.

    One judge had it 8 rounds to 6 with a 10-10.
    Another had it 9 rounds to 6.

    The judge with the 11-4 scorecard was the anomaly, and very few people see the fight that way.

    Ali was never in his career the sort of trouble Conor was in against Floyd and Ali wasn't finished until he was an old man in the early stages of Parkinson's because he was fortunate enough to have an all-time great trainer who refused to allow him to answer the bell against Holmes.

    Conor finishing a retired old man, 20 lbs lighter than himself, in a sport that the old man has never competed in, and that Conor is a current champion in, is not very impressive.

    Floyd at least finished a much younger, much larger, prime condition, current champion fighter.

    It's two very different dynamics. The fact that you can't see that actually strikes me as being pretty dismissive of Conor and the threat he poses.

    conors striking has a HUGE hole that will always cost him against rangier fighters.....he isnt a takedown threat unless he is losing....

    a td attempt from conor means to go all out because hes hurt instead of being respected and causing fighters to be a bit more cautious with kicks and keeping their hands too high.....

    conor will lose all of his future fights where he is at a reach disadvantage unless he starts mixing it up more with quick, efficient takedowns....

    Cody Garbrandt.

    you can suck irish jabroni's dick all the time but the facts cannot be denied: he was TKO'd by floyd and whatever he did was useless, and don't come saying he took 3 rounds from floyd HE ALWAYS DOES THAT.

    Most fighters on the roster except the women fighters and Lobov.

    Colin is a bully fighter, but as soon as someone actually starts fighting back he just falls apart and gasses and wilts and quits. He has no clue how to slip punches and has no head movement. Only being good offensively equals a garbage boxer. He is below amateur level. Powder puff puncher.
