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

First, SRR's the best fighter I've ever seen. I watched him train and fight live from the early '40s. As a welter, he was nonpareil.

If anyone might've frusrated him, it would've been Charley Burley -- a boring, sharp-shooting, defensive whiz. It would've stunk the joint out, but Burley -- one outta three, if the Gods were smiling on him -- mighta got a split nod.
