    Default Chris John.

    Only 2 more fights until John is 50-0. How do you think he'll be remembered? And who would you like to see him fight?

    I hope he fights JMM again one day.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Great fighter but an underachiever imo. He did a bit of a Sturm after the Juarez fight and used it as an excuse to fondle on. That 50/0 mark is very historically significant and when he makes it and rest be assured that he will,it will be scrutinized by the likes of me. He's got 3 draws so he wont overtake Marciano technically but he's still in a very elite group. Far as I know Finito would be the only one with a better finishing record at 51-0-1 if John were to retire after that mark. Holmes probably had the best chance to actually at least tie Marciano in the first Spinks fight.

    He's one one of the greatest technical fighters out of asia . I put him way up there for his skills and longevity as a champion.

    I would love to see donaire face him . This fight would be huge in Asia.

    I would like to see Chris come to the states for his last few fights.
    Donaire would have been my first option until Rigondeaux beat him. So Rigondeaux should get a crack at Chris before Donaire. Besides them, a unification fight would be great. Gonzalez is on a high right now after the 1st round KO over Mares. And IMO, Garcia is the second best behind John in that division. They both would be good opponents for The Dragon.

    I think he should really take the gamble and try to make some big fights happen. A showdown with a Mikey Garcia or now even Jhonny Gonzales would do wonders for his legacy. He needs to prove himself vs the best.

    Chris John is a joke and a hoax, he is a dwarf with no power. Marquez beat him the first time, so no point in a rematch. Let John keep his record, I don't think it means much in the real world.

    Shaeffer said that he has reached out to John multiple times and has been rebuffed each time because John doesn't want to leave Asia for fights.

    They should have said they would hold it at a Walmart parking lot.
