Default Re: Joe Calzaghe would be more likely to beat Samuel Peter than Sugar Ray Robinson

Again, though, you're missing what I said. Robinson is also a top 5 MIDDLEWEIGHT in addition to being a top 2 welterweight. He carried enough pop at MIDDLEWEIGHT to wipe out the top contenders in that division.

Video evidence is clearly subjective--you see a crude caveman, most do not. But going on records? No contest here. Calzaghe faced barely any of the best supermiddleweights in his division, whereas Robinson faced and beat most of the best middleweights.
