Default SRR fought Lamotta twice in 21 days and WOW even had a tuneup fight in between!

Sugar Ray Robinson fought Jake Lamotta for the second time on Feb. 5 1943.

He lost to Lamotta by unanimous decision.

Two weeks later on Feb. 19 he fought and beat Jackie Wilson as a tune up fight.

ONE WEEK after beating Wilson he fights Lamotta again on Feb. 26 1943 and defeats him by unanimous decision.

3 fights in 21 days...amazing

One of the key reasons Boxing has completely fallen off from it's pedestal in the American sports scene. Guys used to fight all the time, including the superstars. You're lucky to see the top guys fight 2x per year, if that. The money has gotten so big that they can do that and make $40-60 million a year that way.

I'm not even asking for what SRR did, just give me like 4 or 5 fights per year from the stars of the sport. Impossible with the way promotions, PPV, revenue, etc works these days but still... throw a fan a bone

Yea the reason they fought that often was to feed their family and to survive. Sugar Ray didn't fight that much because he loved the sport. He fought to have money for groceries. If he was making money like elite boxers today then trust me he wouldn't have nearly as many fights as he does

guys died much more often back then as well.. many stayed permanently damaged. I say 3 fights a year from each fighter is a good amount.
