Tszyu was a limited fighter, far from a a true ATG. Anyone who watched his matches could see this, and not just in his losses.

Tyszu's resume is pretty thin, he fought names but they were all shot to shit.

Tszyu's package of skill and physical attributes is on a completely higher level to Sugar Ray Robinson.

No on-paper resume can change what are the physical facts.

Tszyu was a great technician imo.

Im not sure what the implications are here, but if these guys could fight h2h in a 'p4p' sense, its a guaranteed Robinson win. Analyse what you want and try and find something for Tszyu, but if any1 concludes differently then there is obvious bias. So it doesnt matter about this stuff all as much as it is getting made out imo.

"Tszyu's package of skill and physical attributes is on a completely higher level to Sugar Ray Robinson."

A truly unique insight. You must have become quite rich betting on boxing matches.

completely agree, at least he tried.

robinson chose maxim because maxim wasn't a big puncher (worlds apart from hearns' power).
