Who Is On List With Floyd Mayweather Of Unbeaten World Champions?
When Floyd Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) beat Conor McGregor in 2017, he created history.
The American overtook Rocky Marciano’s record (49-0) record to become the greatest undefeated champion in the sport.
As a result of this achievement, many people regard “Money” as the greatest athlete in the history of boxing. However, there are many other candidates that can create an argument related to this debate.
One of the names that get mentioned a lot is Ruben Olivares.
One of the reasons why the Mexican became so prominent was because he won 24 consecutive inside-schedule battles. During his remarkable run, he didn’t only beat the best in the business, he destroyed them mentally.
Pedro Carrasco is another name that was comparatively less popular than both Olivares and Mayweather. After losing to Aldo Pravisani in 1964, the Spaniard was able to put on an unbelievable run of 83 wins. The only drawback in that run was a draw against Joe Tetteh in 1970.
In the world of boxing, the “GOAT” debate will always be incomplete without the name of Jimmy Wilde.
Becoming popular with the name of “The Ghost with a Hammer in his Hand,” his remarkable 99 inside-schedule wins will forever be in the fabric of the sport. The Welshman was unbeaten in his first four years as a pro until he lost to Scott Tancy Lee.
