combined with that unreal power ...
It's like 4 in the morning sir.
I kind of feel it’s Manny but he’s just much older. Otherwise Spence is there, Loma, Crawford, Usyk. Obviously Canelo despite his inability to get out the way of a jab.
The usual suspects really. Inoue may well be the best p4p fighter but he needs someone in the top 10 to at least show us or needs to keep moving up or unify titles
I’m gonna go with Conor
Definitely Munguia, name one boxer who has/had more tools, you honestly can't unless it's Mason Menard, then I guess that actually counts as one, but anyone else looks one dimensional.
Spence isn't exactly the first that comes to my mind as well rounded...
His jab is there, has power, speed, good enough defense, can fight inside and out.
Inoue gets hit WAY too much and he went life and death with a 37 year old. He dropped on my P4P rankings after the Donaire fight. People ignore how bad his defense is.
Let's see how he does against world class opponents. It will be interesting to see how he fairs up this year on Top Rank. I think a guy like Joshua Greer Jr has a good chance of upsetting him.
Lomachenko, Crawford, Canelo
You can't go wrong with either of those guys as the most well rounded.
It’s still kind of weird to move down a fighter in your rankings after he won a fight.
He is pretty well-rounded in the sense that he is very good at walking guys down but can also box and fight at all distances (which is pretty rare nowadays). His defense definitely does leave something to be desired, though, as evidenced by his last fight.
Yeah, if he weren't well-rounded he wouldn't have won the Porter fight.
I may not be giving Porter the credit he deserves, but I think Spence was too willing to engage with Porter in the middle of the ring, on the inside. To me it seemed he overestimated his in-fighting ability (as did I; I thought he'd overwhelm Porter there, but he definitely did not) and took a lot of punishment as a result. I think he might have looked better and took a fair bit less damage if he stayed behind his jab and boxed Porter from the outside. I might be wrong, though; maybe he just doesn't have the skill to do that against a guy like Porter. It's not as if Porter has ever been easy for anyone.
