I'm sorry but I will never consider him a great.
A very good fighter who eked out every ounce of talent he could have. Hall of Fame for longevity and going unbeaten for so long, yes.
But I don't like his style, her personality, his skillset and I don't think he could hang with prime Hopkins or RJJ. I mean, they both put him on his ass before gassing after 6 rounds. That, to me anyway, gives an indication what would have happened if they'd have met years ago.
Beating a shot RJJ doesn't raise him in my eyes. I'm just more sad for RJJ than anything else, really. A guy who he would probably knocked out in his prime was taking the piss, and there was nothing he could do about it.
