    He looks so sharp here.
    Almost as good as a few MMA fighters.

    We need to find footage of him from the 40s. And I'm not just talking about a few clips of him against Riccio, Beckett, Angott or Flores shot by an amateur, we need entire fights.

    I have read that many SRR fights at WW were filmed, but that they never saw the light of day due to the New York company who filmed them.
    We need to find footage of him vs Sammy Angott (not the grainy crap we have now), Marty Servo, Fritzie Zivic, Maxie Berger, Izzy Jannazzo, Tommy Bell.
    And the most important ones: the fight were he killed Jimmy Doyle, and his fight with Kid Gavillan.

    How can this be done ? Isn't anyone rich enough on this forum or who has connections to collectors ?

    Don't get carried away, Ray gets killed at 175 lbs. against top tier fighters.
