Default Re: Does Anyone Here Really Think Anyone at 147lbs Beats Sugar Ray Robinson

Sugar Ray Leonard would have had a legitimate shot of winning, since he could match SRR in terms of speed, could hit hard, and probably was a better defenisve fighter that Robinson.

You can't rule out Napoles (who possessed an impressive mixture of power and ultra-smooth boxing skill), or Griffith (who had the strength, and versatility to give anyone a hard night at welterweight). In a three fight series, I'd say all of these fighters could easily have taken at least one of the fights.
