    Top Notch- this is the only one I knew. Saw it live. Well PPV live not there live!
    That was the only fight where I saw Roy actually use his jab effectively.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Who are the infamous characters in this picture with Sonny Liston?

    You may not have heard of them Slim but they were the Kray twins, British criminal gangsters.

    Walker Smith is Ray Robinson. He was given that name on fight night and it took hold. Sugar was not his personal name, he was given it by the sports writers.
    P4P was created as a means to express how great he was at potentially any weight.

    One of the few who didnt have to invent a character.

    Ali called himself the greatest. Tyson called himself the baddest man on the planet. Mayweather called himself TBE. But Ray Robinson was given the name Sugar and the accolades of being considered Pound for Pound the best!
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    Ok this is admittingly an old stand by ...the only fighter with a prosthetic leg to fight for a major world title

    Name 4 boxers who won straps in 4 different divisions.....not named Hearns-Leonard-Mayweather-Duran-Jones Jr-Manny or Oscar. Oh and Broner don't count either .

    Yes he was a pretty decent fighter to be honest.

    Decent enough, loads of heart all things considered for sure. Saw this little piece on him a while ago. I never realized how self righteous Ferdie Pacheco was on him fighting. Really backwards thinking to me regarding guys 'risking injury'..the man adapted to carry on and it's certainly not an advantage.

    James Toney should have counted for this, the obvious three weight classes for him of course, and the git did beat ruiz for the wba heavyweight title but failed a drugs test, which is only frowned upon when it's someone you like(or british:S)... He must have won some of the random minor heavyweight titles too.
