Until we see footage, I can't rank him above SRR.
Maybe you mean Ray Windmill White?
Ima request an argument for that.
The way I rank p4p fighters are complete different from how historians rank p4p so its kind of complicated
You’re in the home of complicated and different, you have the floor.
I vote for Ray "Sugar" Robinson, and not to repeat the arguments made by Entaowed, I will add that Ray "Sugar" Robinson has been knocked out ONCE in his 201-fight career. And it's not a knockout, it's a stoppage at 40 degrees Celsius against Joey Maxim, who was 15-16 pounds heavier than him. And at the time of the break, Ray "Sugar" Robinson stood much better on the scorecard (all 3).
Sam Langford has a better single win than Robinsons and he got it while he was blind, shot and fat.
Let’s keep it up.
Do tell more.
Even if that were to be true, he also has countless other losses in his prime and was never champ, and those things count a lot when it comes to who's the greatest.
I change my vote to Floyd Patterson.
Bwa hah hah.
I always come back to sugar ray. It's a combination of career resume and eye test.
Beterbiev knocks him out in 2 rounds.
I was trying to put what he did in his own era, for those not familiar with it, into context, by drawing parallels with what a similiar achievement would look like in this day and age.
I wasn't speculating on the outcome of fights between Langford and a series of modern day boxers.
