Default Would Charley Burley be Ray Robinson's Biggest Win If He Beat Him?

Thoughts on this? It's well documented that Robinson was never really interested in the bout around the time when they were up and coming, and both prime welterweights.

His win over Armstrong was big but Armstrong was well past it.

Yes.


Skill and talent wise Burley would've been the best fighter he ever fought.

Yep, read that. Couldn't believe it actually. Just goes to show you can't fight them all huh?

Burley....a Boxer's boxer....the man who was Archie Moore's daddy.... It might be prudent to at least note in passing how freakin good Burley was. Not only a great fighter but (like Sweat Pea did to Chavez) Burley could make a geat fighter look like an amateur...Maybe it was something in the Pittsburgh water supply? Conn mad Louis look like an amateur for 14.5 rounds haha.

Not just Robinson...a lot of guys made it a habit to avoid this man.

I mean when we start to look at damage control....Someone says to RR "how about Lamotta?" and RR gets to thinking....humm? ok might get my face and ribs rearranged but I can hit back and if I lose? well it will look like this time the brute beat the boxer I mean **** happens."

Then someone mentions Burley....Well different story altogether...this man made one of the best fighters ever look bad in so many ways.... RR might imagine being outboxed, outthought and outworked, made to look like an amateur.

And this is no exxageration. Archie Moore was in many fighters opinion....people who know, the best fighter ever...Sort of like Armstrong with more subtle skills and size...and Burley embarrased him....TWICE!! No wonder RR wanted no part of that!

Excellent post. You seem to be in the know here. Certainly the greatest fighter to never win any sort of championship IMO
