    Yeah, I've always wondered why people say there's no footage of prime (147) Robinson. There's quite a bit.

    Not a proper video of a full fight though.
    I'd love to see him vs Gavillan, and his fights against LaMotta

    There's still quite a bit, a good half hour. And there's footage of him in his prime at 160 as well.

    Seeing this, and other such things on Robinson, what stands out to me is that he's not really a boxer. He's a fighter. He punches extremely hard, he's incredibly fast, no one ever threw better combinations, and he was pugnacious and combative and had good feet. That doesn't make one a boxer, per se.

    I certainly don't mean that as a criticism. It's just an observation. He's no less great because of it.

    Sugar Ray Robinson was the best boxer-puncher that ever laced them..period.There is nobody I'd give a favourite shot
    against him from 147-175 on his best day..It's not that he could swing from boxing to brawling like most boxer-punchers...
    he combined them beautifully from the first bell to the end..he was hard-wired that way...and looked beautifull doing it too.

    He was not perfect by any means as a fighter...but he was the most complete there ever was.

    :nonono

    There's plenty of LHWs that beat him. He was just a welterweight for God's sake.

    Thanks a lot - I will try again. The signs are very confusing (at least to me)
