Default Re: Emile Griffith

For a natural welter to beat somebody like Tiger,IMO a great middle is a great achievement.At his own weight beat some really good fighters.Remember him coming to UK and completely outclassing Brian Curvis,a good boxer.Think he stopped Harry Scott,an achievement in itself.Probably just had the edge on Luis Rodriguez,who I think was just pure class.So was Napoles,but was Emile a bit past his best by then?
