Pancho and Rocket agree. Hoad was the BOAT.
From now on we should use the term BOAT because I'm getting sick of using the term GOAT.
It's interesting that they agree by the way since they both had winning records against him. I would tend to think that they both (Gonzalez and Laver) thought of themselves as the BOAT.
