Re: Is it impossible for the fighters of today to ever reach the greatness of SRR or SRL?
Nope. It's impossible because of what SRR accomplished during his time.
Skillwise, absolutely. Boxers of today have learned from the boxers of the past and have better technique because of it.
Talent wise, without a doubt. Athletes of today have systematically surpassed the athletes of yesteryear in every catergory.
The only thing that cannot be surpassed is the legacy that those from the past have created.
It's impossible to be the first again....
