Who were the best? Who were the worst? Who were good but not great? And who didn’t even fight (at least as a pro)? We know you don’t have to be a great practitioner of any sport to be a great coach of it — Bill Belichick and Nick Saban are the greatest pro and college football coaches of all time and neither was a great player. Same goes for many great baseball managers and basketball coaches. Emmanuel Steward and Eddie Futch were a combined 5-0 in brief pro careers. George Benton was a contender but never a champion or title challengers, and lost most of his fights against the very top tier of competition. Freddie Roach (trained by Futch) was at best a gatekeeper and Kevin Rooney was less than that, getting stopped early by Alexis Arguello in his only notable fight. I think Whitey Bimstein had 70 or so fights. Not sure about Ray Arcel or Freddie Brown or others of that era. What can we make of their careers? Are there any who were truly outstanding who achieved a ton as trainers?
