Not true. Sugar Ray himself says in his autobiography that he lost to Billy Graham. Also, SRR fought in an era when there were no international fights, etc etc

Kostya Tszyu was a beast and considered by many to be one of the best amateur boxers of all time. Sugar Shane Mosley was amazing, the same thing with Oscar De La Hoya. Both Sugar Shane and Mosley very impressive amateur records.

Antonio Tarver, Roy Jones jr and of course Felix Savon and the list goes on

In recent times Odlanier Solis.Correct me if I'm wrong but he actually beat Savon 2 out of the 3 times they met and didn't he stand down from the Cuban 2000 Olympic team,just so Savon could have a chance to go and win gold in his final Olympics?

But other then that I heard every single one of Freitas amateur fights ended in KO.
