    How would SRR fair against these 4 middleweight boxers of the 60's?

    Well, it would be four on one, so instead of a KO, I'll pick Ray by decision. All kidding aside, Robinson beats all these guys.

    I think Tiger could beat an older version of Robinson. Like the one from Fullmer 4.

    Well I think Tiger beats Robinson, other than that He wins all those fights by decision except Carter. He beats carter by knockout

    Tiger would be the best middleweight Ray fought. At least if memory serves me well, feel free to correct me. I think he’d have more success then Jake in a series.

    SRR of 1949 - 1952 beats these guys 9/10 times each tbh.
    His fight against Dick Tiger would be the most interesting but Robinson wasn't as susceptible to the left hook.

    The depth of Robinson’s resume never ceases to amaze me.

    Robinson beats all of those guys. Some think Tiger would be the toughest, maybe so, I guess, but he was predictable and straight on. Robinson would have to be out of shape to lose to him, or any of them. Tiger could be outboxed. Robinson would dance around him and outbox him.

    This is ironic because Robinson knocked out Gene Fullmer with what some would call the greatest left hook ....and Tiger was knocked out by Bob Foster with what some would call the greatest left hook

    Holly Mims did well against the quartet and Robinson beat him while allegedly not being at his best.

    I don’t think Tiger was quite the raging bulldozer Gene was he was a pretty methodical guy.

    How do you think Fullmer would do against Griffith?

    Honestly, at his best he could hand Emile his @ss on a good night. Griff would feel claustrophobic in there with Gene that’s certain.
