I don't even need to read the link...Walker Smith AKA Sugar Ray Robinson...without question the greatest pound4pound! HBO did an outstanding documentary on him about 5 years ago, and it memory serves correctly he was #26 on ESPN's top 50 athletes of the 20th century! I have a couple of his fights (the 6th fight against Jake Lamotta) on tape! The craziest thing about Sugar Ray is that his best reported years were never even film...it is a tragedy we didn't get to see this legend at his greatest.

Yeah bruh Ray was a bad cat ...he was the prototype for true....could hit hard , was quick, had good footwork was hard to hit and had good handspeed...and on top of all that was a good man.....you're right the majority of the fights we see on tape now are not from his best years think about that...we're watching this man and are (at least in my case) awed by him....but what we're seeing is not his best...that's deep man.....There are many greats but none greater I don't care what anybody says....Oh when Ali says Ray is the best then you can take that to the bank...
