He was beating Maxim despite the heat and despite giving up a lot of weight. Even in his losses he was showing greatness.

It's amazing how different the boxing style was back then. Boxing like that today would get him laid out, it's not surprising to hear that he got cracked in his day, but damn could that guy sling leather. Phone Post

what? are you talking about the hands down? what gave you the impression that his style would be all bad today? 5'11 at welter with that speed and power would be unfair even today. martinez fights with his hands down because of his speed and has dominated middle for several years now. robinson had some of the fastest hands ever, but you can see hit sat down on his punches to make them even more powerful. in the last 50 years, the only guys at welter who could have challeneged him has been leonard, hearns, they would have been rangy enough and fast enough wih power of their own to challenge. at middle none. he would have owned hagler and hopkins. hagler had trouble with fast guys, that could also move and give angles. hopkins just doesn't measure up. de la hoya, trinidad, floyd, curry, rjj, none of the other guys who fought at 147-160 in modern times would have beat him

If you look at it from Bernard Hopkins perspective, Sugar Ray just isn't Black enough to best a fighter like Mayweather. Now don't get him wrong -Hopkins isn't talking about RACE. He's talking about CULTURE. Mayweather has that in your face, "I'm using offense to make defense, because I am waiting to counter" speed chess fencing African American of boxing that Sugar Ray Robinson just never had.

Fedoral Crime - 
boxing wiz - 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.
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

He actually had a dream that he was going to kill his opponent, backed out of the fight, a priest talked him back into it, and then killed Jimmy days later.

A GOAT that can tell the future, no can defend.

boxing wiz - 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.

Bullshit. The weight advantage is valid, the heat excuse is laughable.

"n the wake of this ordeal, Maxim, a fighter who felt he always had to struggle for recognition, claimed he had once again been shortchanged. "So Robinson fought in a heat wave," he said sarcastically. "Do you think I had air conditioning in my corner?""

The beating he put on Jake Lamotta is one is the worst I've ever seen. It's also insane for someone like Jake to eat that many shots as you can see in the op's video how hard he hits. Phone Post 3.0
