Boxing historians disagree with you ... As for DeLahoya, I thnk he was an awesome fighter. You need to relax when it comes to benitez... No one is calling him the best, but in terms of historical accomplishment, what he did by beating a damn good fighter in Kid Pambele at 17 is significant ! And beating Palomino. DElahoya would have had some issues with prime Beitez, look at the problems he had with Whitaker. The Benitez that beat Palomino, would pose some problems...Again, this post is about THE greatest of them all, Robinson !
