IMO, Bazooka is the GOAT slugger. Any thoughts?
bazooka might indeed be the greatest slugger. It is a good call

I disagree on Robinson being a better boxer than Charles or Gans though. Robinson was a better fighter, but that is because of his combination of iron chin and "RJesque" blend of power and speed. As a boxer, he is slightly less complete than Charles IMO, as he never had to work certain sides of his game (eg: he probably never met anyone in the same league speedwise) as much as others did. Likewise, I consider RJ a better fighter than Hop or Toney, but as a boxer, he is inferior to both (clearly this is a more extreme example, because of Jones complete unorthodoxy.
