I could see someone like Robinson boxing the piss out of him because he could take what Monzon could dish out, has the gas tank & will to still be strong in rounds 12-15 & has tremendous speed.
Monzon is quite slow as it is, he might even look stuck in the mud vs a true thoroughbred like Ray Robinson, Monzon looks flawed & beatable to me, he just never fought anyone that has the attributes combined with talent to get it done IMO.
Monzon didn't show his cards, he controlled the pace to where he wanted to operate, but when it got out of his hands, he could match a fast pace fairly effortlessly. He was a lot like a change-up pitcher in baseball. He didn't always show you his fastball.
