    SRR would lay a fury of combos on Crawford. Crawford wouldn't last long.

    Terence Crawford would win. You guys overrate Sugar Ray Robinsons head to head abilities like crazy. There's a difference between being the greatest fighter of all time and being able to win head to head matchups.

    Boxing has evolved alot and you people are delusional in thinking that Sugar Ray Robinson is the best head to head Welterweight ever

    Spence, Duran, Ennis, Floyd, Haglee, Roy Jones, Canelo, GGG, Crawford, and Hearns would stop sugar ray head to head. Boxers are much better compared to Robinson's era.

    There’s nobody in boxing history who’s better than, Terence “TBE” Crawford.

    Well, you said Robinson looks 'prehistoric' - when you watch him, what makes you think that, as compared to fighters today? Bad technique? Lower punch power? Lower output? Lower stamina? Lower 'boxing IQ'?

    How so? Yes, better technology when it comes to studying the opponent. Nutrition? Actually, people are trying to eat the way people did prior to all the processing that goes on in making today's food. Food quality was better in Robinsons day. Training? Robinson trained for a hard 15 rounds. At points in his career fought multiple times in a month. Can't get better traing than actually fighting. He had more fights in the first 4 years of his career than Craford does in his entire career. Now, I think today's fighters have the edge in science in the way fights get analyzed. Have a greater understanding of what the opponent is going to do and understand what mistakes they make themselves. In that regard, Crawford with that technology against a 1940's Robinson has an advantage going in.

    How so?
    Nutrition science and recovery sure. Skills? Absolutely not.
