Default Was Sugar Ray Robinson the greatest of all time?

Many say yes some say no. But his record and ability is nothing short of incredible.

All things considered, Ray Robinson, hands down in terms of skill + resume.

Any debate over boxing's GOAT should begin with Robinson. Arguably it should end with him too.

I've been through stages of being split between him and Greb, but inevitably end up back with SRR.
