It's crazy to think the greatest boxer that will ever exist fought over 60 years ago. I can't think of any other sport where the greatest has less of a chance of being surpassed than in boxing. I love him punching to the body with fists out of the clinch like a madman. He was simply born to do it.

To think of it that was is truly impressive. The level in all sports goes up and he was crushing people. Wold Beater status. Phone Post 3.0

I'm glad people who only have heard of him are getting to see what he was about. There is a reason boxing historians say he was the greatest. He was knocking guys dead with a lead hook before Roy Jones was every even conceived. He was the total package, and would have been every bit as devistating today as he was back then. Modern science and training techniques would have developed him into a unbeatable fighter.

whoabro - Not very knowledgeable about boxing so id never actually watched his fights but damn!! He looks to me kind of wild and reckless but makes up for it with insane athleticism like prime RJJ-- is that a fair comparison or am i outing myself as a boxing noob? Phone Post 3.0

Don't worry about what the local historians say bud. You're a combat fan, and it is totally cool to just geek out at a highlight reel like that. high five!


I have seen very little footage of Ray. Clearly both hands were very heavy. A couple times I had to rewind to make sure I saw that left fly as fast as it did. Can anyone tell me about his defense? Didn't see much in this vid, but his face looked pretty worn. Was he slick or a tank?
 


His defense wasn't the greatest. Definitely not bad at all but he was hittable. Thing is he had a great chin and a great sense of distance so he moved in and out of range very well with his fast feet. He was cracked quite a bit though, he just took it like a champ.

He literally did knock someone dead with a left hook didn't he? Jimmy Doyle I think his name was.

I always heard people talk about SRR as being the GOAT but I kind of shrugged it off cos of how long ago he fought.

Its only recently after taking the time to watch a few of his fights and seeing how many titles he won that I realized how great he really was. He wasn't just a great boxer but he was a true champion and avenged most of his losses. Definitely the GOAT imo. Phone Post 3.0

this^ a 5'11 welter with that type of speed and power with either hand and fluidity of movement, combined with a killer instinct and beyond solid chin would be a nightmare for todays guys who are all essentially lightweights and jr welters fighting up. floyd, bradley, marquez, manny are very small guys for the class.

The heat beat Ray that fight, not Maxim. When the ref is TKO's in the 11th due to exhaustion, you know it was a tough day at the office. Ray succumb to the heat a few minutes later, in a fight he was way ahead. Ray also weighed under 150 Lbs fighting for the 175lbs title.

He had everything he was loose with speed power endurance timing footwork strategy and psyche.

Apparently he was a chronic worrier before the fight which he used to make himself train harder.... once in the ring all that disappeared.

He could box a slugger and slug a boxer... very few have even come close to him imo.

When he got beat by Maxim..... Robinson gave away 15lb and he lost because of the heat it was well over 100 degrees that night the referee collapsed due to heat exhaustion aswell.

Robinson was well ahead on points up until he succumbed to the heat.
