Sugar Ray Robinson … Greatest Boxer “Pound For Pound” … Ever

*** FLASHBACK *** This article originally appeared on dmboxing.com on March 2, 2013 and October 28, 2017

I have been asked many times “who is the greatest boxer of all time in any weight division at the height of his career” and that answer is the easiest for me to come up with – Sugar Ray Robinson 핫바디 다운로드. I could go on and on about his career but I will go on record to say that at his pinnacle years he was clearly the best. I was fortunate to meet him at a local amateur boxing show in 1986 where I was a referee for the kids 다운로드. It was truly a highlight that stands out in my over fifty years of being associated with the sport of boxing.

The photos I am including here, along with an excellent highlight video, are Sugar Ray with his wife Millie and my daughter Laura who was just 9 years old at the time 유니티 씬 다운로드. To shake his hand, get his photos and an autograph that evening will forever live in my mind. I am also including the Sugar Ray Robinson postage stamp which was introduced in April 2006 충치디펜스 2.2 다운로드. The only other boxer placed on a U.S. stamp is Joe Louis.

Sugar Ray Robinson is ranked the greatest boxer of all time by sportswriters, fellow boxers, trainers and historians fm2020 모바일. The phase “pound for pound” was invented by boxing experts just for him, when they compared fighters regardless of any weight. I use a famous quote from him when coaching kids at a local boxing gym which is “Rhythm is everything in boxing. Every move you make starts with your heart and that’s in rhythm or you’re in trouble”. That is simply the best quote I can think of that sums it up in boxing. Sugar Ray Robinson was born on May 3, 1921 and passed away on April 12, 1989. As an amateur he posted an outstanding ring record of 85-0 with 69 of those wins by knockout, and 40 being in the first round. He turned pro in 1940 at the age of 19 and by 1951 had a professional ring record of 128 – 1- 2 (1 no contest) with 84 by knockout. He held the welterweight title from 1946 to 1951, and won the middleweight title in 1951. He retired in 1952, only to comeback two and a half years later to re-capture the middleweight title in 1955. He was the first boxer to win a divisional world title five times and this was at a time when only one champion in each division was recognized.

In 200 bouts over a 25 year career, he was only officially stopped once. That was his fight on June 25, 1952 (ironically on my 4th birthday) at Yankee Stadium in his bid to win the light heavyweight championship against Joey Maxim. Well ahead on all official scorecards (10-3, 9-3-1, 7-3-3) he retired on the stool after the 13th round suffering from heat exhaustion with the temperature being 104 degrees that evening in New York City.

Boxer’s – Gone Too Soon

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

When I think of super star singers that have died too young before reaching full stardom, the ones that I instantly think of (and there are more) would be Ritchie Valens (age 17), Buddy Holly (age 22), Selena Quintanilla (age 23), and The Notorious B.I.G windows 10 디스크 이미지. (age 24).

There are similar, tragic stories in the sport of boxing. Here is my personal list of the top five boxers (listed in order by their eras in the ring) who died at a very young age (ie, before twenty-five years of age) 다운로드. Each were great in their respective years in the ring, and arguably could have gone on to greater heights.

The five are Stanley Ketchel (age 24), Les Darcy (age 21), Pancho Villa (age 23), Tyrone Everett (age 24), and Salvador Sanchez (age 23) 다운로드. I want to mention Benny Parent who would certainly be a top choice by anyone in boxing; but my criteria here is before their 25th birthday – Parent was 25 upon his death 검은사막.

Stanley Ketchel / Born: September 14, 1886 / Died October 15, 1910 / Nickname:  Michigan Assassin 더 쉬프트 5 다운로드. Boxing Record: 51 wins, 4 losses, 4 draws, 1 no contest, 48 by KO / Middleweight Champion.

Ketchel died while training and working at Colonel R.P. Dickerson’s Two Bar Ranch in Conway, Missouri. He was shot in the chest by ranch hand Walter Dipley, who was allegedly jealous of his common-law wife who was attracted to Ketchel.

Boxing Historian Nat Fleischer, The Ring magazine founder and editor is quoted as saying: ”Stanley Ketchel is one of the greatest middleweights of all time, and I considered him to be unbeatable at the height of his career.”

Boxing Historian Al Nelson was extremely high on Ketchel and concurred with Fleischer, and he personally told me this during our visits in 1969, ’70, and ’71. Both Nelson and Fleischer lived in the Ketchel era. In my greatest middleweight ranking, I list Ketchel at #4, right behind Harry Greb, Carlos Monzon, and Tommy Ryan, and just ahead of Marvin Hagler and Mickey Walker. Note: Sugar Ray Robinson is ranked #1 over in my welterweight division.

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) … respected contributor to www.dmboxing.com since 2008

First round saw Joe Smith pressing the action, with left jab but with minute left, Beterbiev landed solid rights and started to get round Smith’s guard.  Beterbiev scored a knockdown near the end of the first round.  I have to admit, I wasn’t sure if I was really going to score the fight since this was one of those fights that would not go the distance and Beterviev domination of the last minute of the round strengthen that point 넷폴더. The first round was 10-8, not hard to score.

Beterbiev sent Smith down with overhand in the opening minute of the second round and a second knockdown happen another thirty seconds later.  Smith was in trouble and had over a minute left to survive.  He didn’t as a third big right uppercut sent Smith staggering into the rope 유희왕 극장판 다운로드. The referee stopped the fight almost immediately.

Four knockdowns in less than five minutes showed why Beterbiev may be the best light heavyweight and the only one obstacle to holding all the belts is Dmitri Bivol, a very good boxer who recently defeated Saul Alvarez 다운로드.

Edgar Berlanga put his undefeated record against veteran Alexis Angulo who has already fought for the Super Middleweight title.  During Puerto Rico weekend, Edgar Berlanga was excited to be fighting at the Madison Square Garden like many other great Puerto Rican fighters like Migue 영화 룸 다운로드. Cotto.

Berlanga scored 16 first round knock out in his first 16 fights.  Now he has been forced to go distance his last four fights and this fight should some weakness and concern on whether he can become the next great Puerto Rican fighter 오늘도 빛나는 너에게 inst 다운로드.

This fight showed his boxing skills as he was able to control Angulo from the outside almost every round, but he didn’t show the power that allowed him to knockout 16 straight fighters.  He even bit Angulo because he felt Angulo was using his elbow in close. 

I had the fight 99-91 and the judges agreed on similar margins.  The scorecard read 100-90, 99-91, and 98-92, so there wasn’t really any question who won.  He landed an average of 3 more punches per round and threw 7 more punches per round.  His connect was 36% and his opponent only connected on 29%.  So statistically he won the fight and the stats should us the winner 로드 메이트.

Picking the greatest boxers of all time, from different countries around the world, was really an easy and fun task 다운로드.

The last time the two fought in 2019, it was close bout and up for fight of the year as Inoue won the bout 다운로드. Donaire won his next two fight by knockout and became champion at the age of 39 after coming down to bantamweight from featherweight.  Inoue won three fights by knockout and both men came into the rematch bout with share of the title 멜론 2019년 7월.

Haney “Unanimous Decision” Over Kambosos … Becomes “Undisputed” Lightweight Champion

씨프 하트 다운로드

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA)

George Kambosos and Delvin Haney were both undefeated and the winner would walk away as the unified title holder in the lightweight division with four belts.  Both opponents were excellent defensive fighters and not easy to hit, and this was an even fight between two very good fighters. 

The first round saw both fighters feel each other out and there were minor differences between the two fighters, but I gave the round to Kambosos on the strength of him landing 8 punches to 5 punches for Haney; and in the second half of the round, Kambosos landed the best punch with a solid right-hand counter which gave this round to Kambosos as well.  Haney had yet to establish a rhythm 역전 재판 1 다운로드.

Haney started to land solid shots in the second half of the third round and this continued into the fourth round and the fifth round as he used his jab to disrupt Kambosos’ attack.  The sixth round was close as both fighters landed a couple of good combinations and Kambosos may have won the sixth round.  At the halfway point of the fight, I had it 57-57 다운로드.

Haney’s jab won both the seventh and eighth round and his defensive skills allowed him to avoid Kambosos’ haymakers.  The seventh round was Haney’s best at this point in the fight as he used his jab to set up two nice combinations.  After the eighth round Kambosos’ corner looked worried as did much of the crowd of nearly 50,000 fans who showed up for their favorite fighter.  This was the biggest bout in Australia in decades and the hometown Kambosos was behind 다운로드.
