Default Anyone else agree SRR is overrated?

I mean he fought a bunch of mediocre fighters 200 times is that grounds for P4P.

SRL IMO has the better resume just by beating Hearns and Hagler.

That is all.

Absolutely, and not many people would admit to this because you have extreme nuthuggers ready to castrate you for it. His legacy is built upon stats. He padded his record much the same way Chavez did to get that many wins, and very few in his era were actually greats. Furthermore his numerous titles and "moving up in weight" are also overrated. The guy was always bigger than his opponents so not much credit given there.
He will always be the myth in boxing. Idiotic lads will defend his mythical #1 status without even seeing more than just youtube highlights.

Not at all. A thread like this shows that he's still underrated.

Educate yourself before posting something like this.

He beat more ATG's and HOF's than anyone else in the history of boxing. He was the welterweight champion for 4.5 years and a 5 time middleweight champion.

His sole loss in his prime was to the ATG middleweight Jake LaMotta and he was outweighed by 15 pounds. He avenged that loss 4 times.

SRL was great, but not on the level of Robinson.

lol this topic is partly true....if you listen to the people on here he never threw any bad punches, never did anything wrong.......like when people say robinsons the best because of 200 something wins that stupid as hell because some guys have even more than that....so dont listen to them and make up your own opinion, hes top 3 imo.....

leonard gotta be considered top 10 for his resume alone, even tho he has the least fights outta everybody.....he never established himself at middleweight like robinson tho....

Graziano is one of the greatest punchers of all-time. Fullmer beat four world champions, at a time when there was only one world title.
