I know this is a case of pure speculation but I do wonder how middleweights of today, yesteryear, or yester yester...yesteryear would fare against him.
He was a road warrior, a technical purist, a minimalist and, heck he could bang too if he wanted to. I'd be giddy as a school girl if I could see him against Gene Fullmer or Henry Armstrong, or against Robinson as he was suppose to fight on more than one occasion. I really can't pick out a winner though I think he’d have a far easier time against fighters who tend to lead on the front end.
I'd like your thoughts about this hypothetical bout.
