You could make that argument but for me Greb is #1
Agree and for 25 years too.
sometimes you see a thread about a Fighters Top 10 Opponents, I once created a thread, over at the CBZ, called SRR's Top 25.
and guess what, you can fill it, easily!
Not even close. He might have dominated his era, he might have been the best up until that time, but from watching him fight in this fight from 70 years ago, he's not the best ever or even close in a H2H competition.
What do you mean?
What aspect of this fight tells you that he is "not even close" to being the best H2H?
Pat didn’t train him therefore he sucked. Pat is a troll...listen to him big up an absolute one trick pony and boxing clutz like Wilder to see his modus operandi.
The best ever is a current year boxer, because boxers and all athletes for that matter are getting better and better. Teofimo has 70 plus years of advancement compared to SRR. The best ever is Teofimo until next year of course.
No, he's from 100 years ago. Greb is the GOAT.
Loma was the best boxer ever last year. His skills were left in the dust due to the passage of time and the advancement of the sport produced by the new superman aka Teófimo.
I have a feeling we have Supermans kryptonite biding his time atm. Tank Davis will be the pfp all time greatest after 2022!
A case could be made that Sam Langford is the pound for pound GOAT, and he was active from 1902-1926. The man had a successful career from Lightweight to Heavyweight. If he had been given the opportunity, Sam would probably have picked up a few Lineal belts in several weight classes along the way, including Heavyweight.
I think Sugar looked pretty sweet in this fight
Wilder held his elbow at a Pythagorean angle of exactly 72.2 degrees from his hip, which created an acute angle from his right calf. It’s different my guy, and quite frankly I wouldn’t expect you to understand.
As great as Ray was, I've always thought that Henry Armstrong's feat of being World Featherweight, Lightweight and Welterweight Champion at the same time, when there were only 8 weight classes and 1 Champion in each is mind blowing.
