Great fighter but not as accomplished as Chavez was when Whitaker beat him.
when mentioning someone like srr, you have to take into account that it was a different time period with different caliber fighters. SRR was like a roy jones talent in his day. In roys prime he is pretty much considered an unbeatable fighter. If SRR only fought 3 times a year, there is a strong possibility that his career would have been an even greater success.
in terms of talent,You could make a case for ODLH running through SRR's resume undefeated, but its all about how you interperet it. Oscar was trained under modern methods, someone like Lamotta may not fair as well against an athlete with modern conditioning.
These arguements are always oppinion based... there is no right or wrong answer.
