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

It will have to happen after a fighters career is over. Robinson wasnt seen as the fight that he is seen as today. It took time, same with Leonard. Its not until the next group of fight fans come along and say DAMN that guy was great. Just a side note. When I was a kid, 7 or 8 my father took me to a fight, I had been fighting as an amatuer for about a year and a half at that time. While watching the fight I recall thinking, man all these people here to watch this, two skinny guys I dont see anything special here. I remember thinking that the big kids at the gym were better then these guys. The fight that I was at............................................ ............................... ..................... ........................ .......................... ......................... ...................... ............... ........... ...............Tommy Hearns vs Ray Leonard, go figure.
