Yeah man, Pep was an amazing boxing talent and most fans of boxing history rate him as the greatest Featherweight of all-time.

Like you say, it was mainly his defensive mastery which stood out above all other things with him. He could do it all on defense and at the very highest level, as he'd slip, slide, side-step, block, parry, duck...whatever it took to avoid his opponents punches, and he pulled those moves off with excellant quickness, amazing reflexes, and beautiful grace. He was also very quick to counter his opponents misses, as well, and was very excellant at feinting his opponent into making the first move.

One of the greatest fighters of all-time, no doubt, and most often named as the greatest defensive fighter of all-time by those in the know.

yip one of my all time great fighters, be interesting to know the date of the video footage, pre or post crash.

yip it could well be that he was doing this after a plane crash that left his back broken and one leg shorter than the other.


a legend of legends.

He was the one that won a round without throwing a single punch if I'm correct.

I think that story about Pep winning a round without throwing a single punch is more of a modern myth than actual reality.

It was said to have happened in the third round of Pep's fight against Jackie Graves, but according to a boxing historian whom I've gained a bunch of respect for, the actual fight reports of that Pep/Graves fight indicate that it didn't happen, and in fact the third round was said to have had more action in it than most of the other rounds in the fight..."A clicker couldn't count the blows landed by both" is one comment made by the newspaper reporters regarding that particular round, and no mention of Pep's supposed feat anywhere in the reports.
