He destroyed Cotto,, Mayweather had a tougher time of it, Marquez is a naturally smaller man I would say,, and pacquiao is even more naturally smaller than Marquez. Obviously styles make fights, JMM has done better against pac than any I can think of. but Cotto,, although way bigger than pac (talkin natural weight), was owned and brutalised by pacquiao, I say this without blinking, PacMans feats outshine Jrs and is pound for pound the better fighter,, and still why does mayweather avoid him ?

From my perspective, I'm damn glad he did comeback to get those on film! The way he disposes of Olson in III and IV, the left hook he drops on Fullmer and the wars with Basilio are noteworthy moments of his career.
The two fights with Basilio are fantastic,, and I still wonder if the results were the wrong way around,, I find the 2nd fight really hard to score and its natural that with Basilios badly damaged eye it sure looks like he lost, but there was an enormous amount of of puches landed by both guys,,, the results could easily have been Ray winning the first and Basilio the 2nd instead of the other way around,, but in the end 1 all is a very fair outcome. I really loved the way that Basilio always seemed to get stronger as a fight wore on. The only fighter I ever saw that dominated Basilio in a big way was Fullmer, oh man that fight really makes me wince.

A Greb V Darcy fight around 1921 would have been one of the classics, 20 rounds of pure fury, and not much chance of a stoppage. when Darcy had his last fight Greb was still on the way up. The point I'm making about SRR is that there was nothing lacking in his armoury. Please understand that Greb is one of my favourites as well and yes a dynamite punch is not the be all and end all, but certainly I prefer Darcy,, a combination of iron chin/dynamite on both hands/skills/stamina/speed of hand and foot sure makes for an exciting fighter. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Darcy ?,, yes his early death may leave some questions in some minds, and the biggest question is how a Darcy V Greb fight would have turned out. Many decades have now passed, so I cant be sure especially since no film of a Greb fight exists, but Jack Doc Kearns certainly was a bit of an expert on fighters and had seen Greb, Darcy, Klaus, ketchel, Walker, Flowers, McGoorty, Clabby, Gibbons, Papke in action by the early 30's when he stated that in his opinion Les Darcy was the best Middleweight he ever saw, (he trained Walker so one would have expected Jack to have favoured Walker, but according to Kearns, walker wasnt a chance in that match-up). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Boxing history is basically stats and opinions and great books and film,, nothing more.
We all know you like Darcy.

You don't need too be a great puncher to be up there with Robinson as is evident, just because you 'prefer' someone that can punch hard doesn't mean that you can't compare Greb's greatness to Robinson's, his resume is just as good as Robinson's, you could even argue Greb's resume is better / greater.
Quote:
I know they are highly popular and deserve to be. BUT, seriously theres no way Greb for instance was comparable, for a start he wasnt the complete fighter like Ray,

I really thought you were joking. I am sorry for you, I can suggest you watch professional wrestling or circus instead of boxing. Seems more in tune with your love for power punchers.

Like I said in the other thread, you can't judge who is better of common opponents. You said it yourself, styles make fights.

In 1974, George Foreman and Muhammad Ali had two common opponents; Ali lost to Norton and Fraizer, Foreman destroyed them both in two rounds. Who's better?

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquaio are around the same level. Hell, there's an argument that Mayweather is greater IMO.

Had so much speed and power, could punch and hurt you wading in-and-out, going forward or backwards, with a cast iron chin of his own. Best combination puncher I've ever seen -- that includes Louis, Tyson, Leonard, et al. This is based primarily on '50s Middleweight material, when Robinson was over 30 years old and no longer at his peak or even his most dominant weight class. Crazy.

Comparing his record to anybody not named Greb, Langford, Charles, Armstrong is almost a certain joke as well.


fuck yeah

why dance when you've got a chin of stone and you might be the best offensive fighter ever?
dig in and take somebody's head off.

Did a pretty good job of it in his biggest Middleweight wins:

Jake LaMotta (TKO 13)
Randy Turpin (TKO 10)
Rocky Graziano (KO 3)
Carl Olson (UD 15) (KO 2) (KO 4)
Gene Fullmer (KO 5)
Carmen Basilio (SD 15)

All of these were brutal.

That Cotto was coming off a brutal beating with loaded wraps, into a bad style match-up. Cotto is always going to do better against boxers. He doesn't have the stamina to hold up against a pressure fighter like Margarito or Pacquiao.

Also you can't just lay the blame for the fight not happening on Mayweather. Both camps have ****ed the fight up. Bob Arum wanted to delay it until a date he pretended he didn't know Mayweather would be in prison, he wanted to build a new stadium, "Pacquiao had a cut that was too deep after Marquez III". Pacquiao walked away from the table in 2009 over drug testing when it was 50:50 split.

After all that (and a goddamn lawsuit) Mayweather doesn't want to give him 50:50. Go figure.

You might want to add that the great Manny Pacquiao had just said that he was willing to get less than 50-50.

Or that the brave indomitable warrior has just turned down Cotto without a catchweight.

The list is long...
