    H2H, I truly see him as the best ever.
    Achievements wise, top 10 all time, but not no. 1.

    Griffin put a bit of a schooling on him that night, beat him fairly and squarely. Rematch was predictable because Griffin had ditched Futch, not trained right and wasn’t allowed to warm up/entered ring cold.

    You have to use a lot of excuses to call him the best H2H fighter ever. I bet that you don't count anything that happened outside of 1986-88 period, right?

    Roy belongs nowhere near the best at LHW. But what you have written is absolute nonsense.

    You don’t think that Duran and Leonard look better on film than Floyd and Manny at LW and WW?

    You're so reactive to whatever I post that you mixed up the weightclasses.

    This should practically be required viewing.

    It’s also entertaining as well as educational.

    @Rumsfeld painted his masterpiece.

    Bingo. That's my thinking exactly mate. His record at 160 is spotty because by the time he won the title he had 125 fights behind him and the GOAT career at 147. During his crammed Euro tour he apparently trained on the golf course and at the craps tables going into his loss against Turpin which he quickly reversed of course.

    He had a couple of solid defenses and then retired after losing to Maxim for the 175 title and had a solid 2 1/2 Year break. His performances and form were truly spotty after this winning, drawing and losing at the top on a consistent basis before dropping right off in 62.

    Despite beating some excellent opponents and putting on the odd brilliant display this certainly wasn't the guy that went to 160 permanently in the second half of 1950. The best at 160 was the Robinson going into Valentines.

    No it's not. Roy was far superior to Griffin

    Jones was ahead leading into the last round and had dropped him to boot before getting himself DQ'd.

    Schooling? Pure sensationalism.
