Robinson could deliver a knockout blow going backward.
Robinson quotes
He come at me with two punches, a left and a right. I didn't know which hit me first. The punches didn't hurt me, but when I started to move, my legs wouldn't go with me, and I fell over on my head.
Robinson
Don't give him a rematch. Because once you beat him that way, you'd be sure that the next time he'd adjust, and he'd know what to do.




Robinson Sugar Ray quotes
Someone once said there was a comparison between Sugar Ray Leonard and Sugar Ray Robinson. Believe me, there's no comparison. Sugar Ray Robinson was the greatest.

Ray Robinson was the perfect fighter because he had no weakness. He had one greatest chins of all time. He was never really knocked out in a 25 year career. Another special thing about Robinson was how many times he was able to get off the floor to win. He always rose to the occasion.
Sugar Ray Robinson quotes
He boxed as though he were playing the violin.

Robinson's repertoire, thrown with equal speed and power by either hand, includes every standard punch from a bolo to a hook—and a few he makes up on the spur of the moment.
Robinson Sugar Ray quotes
That man was beautiful. Timing, speed, reflexes, rhythm, his body, everything was beautiful. And to me, still, I would say pound for pound...I'd say I'm the greatest heavyweight of all time, but pound for pound, I still say Sugar Ray Robinson was the greatest of all time.
Robinson
Nobody beat Ray twice until he was 40 years old. His intelligence, his versatility, and his will to win were the reasons he won all those rematches. He created a new place for the imagination of a fighter.

The king, the master, my idol.

Rhythm is everything in boxing. Every move you make starts with your heart, and that's in rhythm or you're in trouble.




Sugar Ray Robinson quotes
He was a tremendous puncher, with either hand. Knock you dead puncher. Knock you dead. And a terrific finisher.
