I'll push it a bit for the sake of unpopularity.

Sonny Liston would K.O. Wladimir Klitschko.

Joe Louis would K.O. Lennox Lewis.

Judah deserved to win against Matthysse, it was no robbery.

Floyd Patterson is underestimated.

People tend to score a fight for the bigger puncher, completely disregarding the actual scoring criteria.

Louis and Judah ones might be unpopular, but I doubt the rest of those are. With the scoring, people go for the harder punches because part of the criteria is "effective aggression", which can be interpreted as bigger punches.

RJJ may be the most naturally gifted boxer ever.

A lot of the old time guys wouldnt beat many of the modern era guys. Sport has evolved. The freak talents would be ok, but typically guys of similar skill, the bigger force will win.

Yeah id agree there, that one was only ever going to go one way if it happened! I think he could have had a better HW career than say a David Haye though if he had chose to

Yes and no. Meaning, I agree with you that Robinson pulled many stunts, but he fought so often that (most) fights eventually happened. And in multiple series (so rematches also happened and happened timely). Plus I don't recall reading about him negotiating many catch weights or specific in-fight conditions (but this might just be my ignorance).

It was private before, fixed it. - HaglerSteelChin 
Default Blasphemy against "Sacred Cows"

The fighters listed below are revered by many, but - for mostly intangible reasons - haved failed to impress me:
  • Lennox Lewis
  • Floyd Mayweather
  • Pernell Whitaker
  • Vitali Klitschko
  • Wladimir Klitschko
  • Ezzard Charles
  • Wilfred Benitez
  • Winky Wright
  • Andre Ward
Disclaimer: I freely admit that failure to admire any of the above could be a character flaw of mine, but one I can easily live with.
