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.

Benny Leonard vs. Rocky Kansas / Lightweight Championship and RECAP

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

As many of my faithful readers and friends know, my greatest lightweight of all time and #2 greatest boxer “pound for pound” of all time is Benny Leonard 탱고음악 다운로드.

At the height, peak, prime, pinnacle of his career he was flawless. His boxing mechanics in the ring – feints, ducks, sidesteps, and hooks – were textbook, with a terrific left-hand piston jab which he used to perfection 울타리 3.5 다운로드. He fought over two hundred fights and suffered only four knockouts, three early in his career and the fourth in his final fight.

Leonard, nicknamed “The Ghetto Wizard”, was similar to Sugar Ray Robinson in the fact that he had no significant weaknesses 다운로드.

Benny Leonard (Benjamin Leiner) was born in New York City on April 7, 1896. As a young kid he engaged in many street fights, gang related, in the neighborhood where he grew up 문명의 시대 아시아 다운로드. He made his professional debut on October 14, 1911 when he was just fifteen years old. Benny took the name Leonard after his true name, Leiner, was pronounced incorrectly several times; but most importantly, he made the change because he didn’t want his parents to know he was a fighter 다운로드.

Upon learning of the sudden death of Marvin Hagler on March 13, 2021 at his New Hampshire home at the age of 66, my mind instantly switched into the mode of years-gone-by as I relived memories of this great fighter 다운로드. Hagler along with Alexis Arguello are my favorite boxers.

Marvin Hagler was born on May 23, 1954 in Newark, New Jersey, and in his childhood years moved to Brockton, Massachusetts. 

In 1969, Hagler took up boxing and met Pat and Goody Petronelli at their Brockton boxing gym 다운로드. They would become his trainers and managers throughout his amateur and professional careers.

In 1973, Hagler won the National AAU 165-pound championship by defeating U.S 텔레그램 일괄 다운로드. Marine standout Terry Dobbs and that same year also won the USA National title. His amateur record was 55 wins, with only one loss.

Boxing’s Unsung Heroes

By Steve Corbo

(Part #1 of 2 )

Nice to see English boxer Martin Murray get some favorable publicity recently, in an article by Ted Sares 연속지적도 다운로드. Murray, previously featured on www.dmboxing.com is a real Pro 다운로드. What a career this guy has. His record stands at 39-6-1. In 46 pro fights he was stopped only once, by Triple G, in 2015, for G’s WBA, IBO & WBC Middleweight Titles.  He dropped decisions against Sergio Martinez for the WBC World Middleweight Title, dropped a split decision to Arthur Abraham, in Germany, for the WBO World Super Middleweight Title and fought Felix Sturm to a highly controversial Draw, in Germany, with Sturm’s WBA Super World Middleweight Title on the line 5인의 탐정가 다운로드. He also lost a decision to Billy Joe Saunders, on December 04, 2020 in a bout for the WBO Super Middleweight Title. That’s five (5) shots at a world title and along the way he captured the WBA Interim World Middleweight Title java 첨부 파일 일괄. Hope I got all the alphabets right… but It doesn’t matter. This kid Murray can fight! 

Unfortunately none of his fights have been on US soil 다운로드. For years Murray had been denied a US Visa, due to legal problems. I heard he finally was able to get things straightened out but, as of this date, he has yet to set foot in a US Ring. Perhaps he never will. The losers here have been the US fight fans, who never really got a chance to know Murray or see him fight in person. I sure wish this guy would have come up in Southern California!
