Default Re: Is it impossible for the fighters of today to ever reach the greatness of SRR or SRL?

RJJ dominated everyone from 1990-2002 - went from being a Middleweight to a Heavyweight champ, yet he isn't seen anywhere near Sugar Ray Robinson
He has two ATG's on his resume.

Chances are at a catchweight, H2H, he ****ing dominates Sugar Ray Robinson.
Jones wold be competitive in with Sugar - seems unlikely to me, he would beat him.

Quote:
50 years later, perhaps - RJJ will be seen in a similar light..

Maybe Floyd, too, who knows.
These two just don't have the great fighters on their resumes. It's ok to fight less fighters but you have to fight great fighters to achieve the sort of status you are talking about.
