I guess they waited for me to wake up!!.......greatest==Sugar Ray Robinson!!!

Both Roy and Ray Leonard were very talented boxers who fought at a very high level but there are a number of ATG fighters that exceed their accomplishments!! Ray.

I'd second this! For sheer talent, I've never seen anyone quite like Roy Jones Jnr.

I would pick Ray Charles Leonard over Ray Charles in a boxing match though.

No no no. How on earth can you use the "u" word given the pedestrian competition he faced?

I would be very comfortable picking a very few fighters to beat him at every weight that he competed at... other than MAYBE at 168, but even there I can see some great fighters beating him.

He was visually sensational, but there were flaws there that his extreme atleticsism covered. I believe that elite ATGs could solve his puzzle, particularly in a 15 rounder.

I'm not even a Roy Jones fan. Watching him, however......his blend of speed, power, and unorthodox-ness makes it difficult for me to envision anyone 168lbs and below finding a way to defeat him.

You can't envision a Robinson beating him? Or a Charles?

Charles at 168-175? Maybe. Robinson at 160? Nope.

Both were greater than he was, but that's due to their accomplishments. Head-to-head I don't see either beating him at his peak.

If Roys wassnet soo focued on putting on a show, he would be miles ahead of every other boxer that ever lived.

In some ways his natural talent and extreme fysic got in way of his development as a fighter, and in the end it became his downfall
