Boxing's Greatest Fighters af Bert Randolph Sugar

Boxing's Greatest Fighters

af

Easily the most enduring of all sports questions is "e;Who was/is the best . . . ?"e; Perhaps in no sport is the question more asked and argued over than in boxing. And in boxing perhaps none is more qualified to answer the question than Bert Randolph Sugar.In Boxing's Greatest Fighters, not only does the former publisher of Ring Magazine tell us who the best fighters were, he lists them in order.Could Sugar Ray Robinson have beaten Muhammad Ali? Could Sugar Ray Leonard have beaten Sonny Liston? The answer, most experts agree, would be "e;no."e; But what if, as Bert Sugar has done here, one were to take all the boxers and reduce them in the mind's eye to the same height, the same weight, and the same ring conditions? The answers would be quite different.And while some fans may express outrage that Rocky Marciano barely makes the top twenty, and Marvin Hagler staggers into the top seventy-five, others will nod eagerly when they read that Harry Greb and Benny Leonard were better than just about anybody.So whether you read Boxing's Greatest Fighters cover to cover, pick yourfavorites at random, or simply browse through the many rare photographs, "e;atthe bell, come out arguing."e;
