    Gatti at #1? Sorry, but lol.

    I know people love Gatti, but guys like Maidana would have always wiped the floor with him.

    Current guy I like is Kovalev. He makes it look effortless and guys go tumbling.

    Any current top competitor should mop anybody from past eras. I don't like when past eras are compared to today's.

    Today's fighters are just much more evolved, smarter, faster, stronger and even the brawlers are very defensively sound.
