    Spot on, Preme - there are not many weight classes where you can say with any degree of certainty who was the best ever ....... but flyweight is one of them, and Jimmy Wilde is the answer.

    Hard to say im not even certain if there is an video of him, he started his pro boxing career before there was ever a flyweight champion, he was the first ever. you can only go by what you read on this guy. The ring used to call Jimmy in the 40's or 50's the best p4p there was.

    A fight i would love to see, jimmiy was like 31, 32 then 6 years of being the best at his weight, over 800 booth fights, 130 pro fights, that shit catches up on you, and when pancho came out he was to young and youthfull for wilde, although this had its fair share of contreverys too... (one reaosn id love to see it)

    At the end of the second when the bell went wilde dropped his hands coz the round was over, on doing this pancho hit him with a yhunderous hook, wilde supposedly fought the rest of the fight concust not remebering anythign after the second round... it was his last ever pro fight (adleast recorded)

    Miguel Canto was a superb Flyweight IMO there could be an arguement that he might be the best ever.....

    Theres a lot to be taken into consideration here; opponents, accomplishments etc. etc.

    Mick,fill me in on Canto,what was he like? Record? And will you ever cease your HATRED for Wonjongkam! Has that guy EVER fought someone in the top 10? or even top 20,30? And he keeps racking up the records,I hope that in 40,50,60 years from now they remember that all he ever did was fight bums!
