For sure...

Best LW of AT
1st to own Leonard
WW champ
L/M champ
MW champ

His record speaks for itself, Was easily as good as Robinsons..
With regard to inconsistencies.. Robinson was similar..

The answer to your question is absolutely...However the same thing could be said about other fighters as well...IMO Discipline and work ethic are attributes just like speed and power...Some fighters have it and others do not...
