    Yep, boxing is different because like you said, it's an individual sport. Although i wasn't comparing stats with what i said earlier.

    In basketball, the officiating and how the game is played has changed by a lot. I personally dont even know how to regard bill russell who played in an era where basketball was so different. He has the accolades but I just don’t have a good feel of how he translates across eras as a player. Debates like this would be harder to settle.
    Yes, it's hard. That's why at times it is better to look at their success as a team because one thing's for sure; they were dominant during their era, regardless of competition, league rules, playoff formats, field goal modes, etc.

    I'm not saying you're wrong, but do you have a source for this? If I had to guess a "consensus" GOAT boxer, it would be Muhammad Ali.
