    Pirog is my favorite boxer.

    This will certainly upset many people, especially given that he hasn't been tested by top level competition, but I think that Pirog's performances speak to him being today's most technically sound fighter.

    Of course Mayweather, Pernel Whitacker, Calzaghe and the many other technical geniuses in boxing appear faster or more effective but given the matches I've seen, none follow such an exciting and complete game plan throughout their fights. Of course it's entirely possible that his success is largely a function of the entry-level competition he has faced un to now. Nevertheless his fights are "how to" boxing highlights reels.

    So two questions:

    (a) How would you rank the following boxers on purely technical skill?
    (1) Dmitry Pirog
    (2) Pernell Whitaker
    (3) Sugar Ray Robinson
    (4) Floyd Mayweather
    (5) Joe Calzaghe
    (6) Sugar Ray Leonard
    (7) Wladimir Klitschko
    (8) George Foreman

    (Obviously these aren't my rankings! I would have B-Hop at 1 or 2.)

    (b) When / where will Dmitry Pirog fight next?

    I wouldn't have gotten that yawn without the KOing of Mayweather! :)

    Is this how dead these forums usually are?

    Bizarre thread. Anyway, Pirog is cool as hell to watch. If he can get healthy and get things back on track, he can certainly be a factor at MW.

    He was an interesting contender that had a lot of momentum but who knows what happens now after the hiatus with the back injury and whether he'll return to his former self.
