Sugar Ray Robinson
simply that he fought so many more fighters - he literally faced 4 + times as many fighters in his career.

Robinson at welterweight was unbeatable.

Robinson, in an era where more of the great athletes veered towards boxing, knocked out an absolutely incredible 80% of those he faced, and lost to no one. His professional record, in his early years, will also never be matched - he had a nine year winning streak undefeated with nearly 100 fights in a row.

Robinson also fought (and beat) a better caliber of opponents, including Hall of Fame fighters Jake LaMotta, Randy Turpin, Carmen Basilio, Bobo Olson, Gene Fulmer, Kid Gavilan, Fritzie Zivac, Joey Giardello, Rocky Graziano, and Henry Armstrong. And all of these were at middleweight, when he himself was a natural welterweight, who rarely weighed the middleweight limit.

Ray Leonard, a guy who calls them the way he sees them, says Robinson was the best ever and he could not have beaten him.

He was right. Ray Robinson is the best pound for pound fighter ever-----

RE: Sugar Ray Robinson
Even Ali, who called himself the greatest, conceded that Sugar Ray was the best P4P ever.


Ali modeled his style on Robinson's and they became close friends.
