Default Dick Tiger

I recently watched one of his fights and wanted to know how good was he?

One of the best Middleweights ever to lace them up, in my opinion. Tiger may be the best slugger that ever fought. I rate him in the top 20 for his division, the argument for placing him just inside the top 10 is not a weak one.

Probably the best fighter to every come out of his continent.

A great Middleweight Champion IMO, but was vulnerable to a foxy boxer w/ a jab. Joey Giardello, Joey Archer and Emile Griffith come to mind. Tiger beat Giardello of course in their 1965 rematch, but it was a case of Joey's age catching up with him and his legs letting him down as much as anything else.
