    Interesting that he too places Fury in his top ten list, maybe Fury being spoken of in GOAT conversations is not as ridiculous as it may seem to some. I appreciate like most other things the perspective one has in a conversation like this is very subjective.

    To be the GOAT you have to be number one surely?

    Pernell Whitacker: watch him hit without being hit and his use of angles: just an awesome boxer, not everyones fav and itís obviously super subjective but heís my goat!
    Seriously check out his fights on YouTube you wonít be disappointed.

    Both Sugar Ray's were not half bad though only saw one in my lifetime!

    He was sublimely fast and skilful and I loved watching him, he really did make you appreciate the 'sweet science'

    The great Welsh boxer Sugar Dai Betes was marvellous. He had a sweet right hand.

    "Sugar" Ray Robinson was the p4p greatest boxer who ever lived. I'm saying that in the accent of Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall in the barber shop in "Coming to America."

    And Iím of the opinion you hit greatness by challenging yourself in boxing and not by manipulating a win streak; Iíd choose Canelo over Mayweather any day as the better boxer.

    But, I think Tyson could hold his own against any of the fighters mentioned. Heís a brilliant boxer and 6í9.
    Interesting you choose Canelo over Mayweather given the outcome of their fight...
