Robinson also was very good with his feet. He could dance all over the ring when he wanted. Yeah I have to admit. hearns would be out gun in just about every department... besides the fact that Ray had ungodly stamina

If you knew what he did in the gym,you'd be even more surprised..He'd spar 6 rounds when he'd be preparing for 15 round fights..He would be in and out the gym in 2 hours after working technique and doing his work out..It's all about being loose and making a point to not over train..It's better to be under trained then over trained..Have you ever seen Robinson tense??Naw..Robinson is only behind Benny Leonard and Tommy Loughran in the footwork department..He used minimal energy while moving by sliding while the guys he was fighting was chasing after him for the most part..His footwork was key to his success..

^^^^Good point about the footwork.



You can see a prime welterweight Robinson here. He could slide left or right with ease all the while maintaning his balance and punching with full leverage and body weight to really add power.

Watch Hopkins Echols II-- after Hops got up from being body slammed he put on a footwork clinic while beating Echols with one hand... Ray Rob was his idol and can see things hops adopted from Ray Rob... watching that youtube clip of Ray Rob dropping his hands and sticking his chin out tells me that Roy Jones copied alot too.. Who would not be wise enough to call themselves great and not study Ray Rob???

Willie Pep is another who had amazing footwork. And of course Ali for a heavyweight had very unusual footwork considering how big he was. Roberto Duran in his prime had underrated footwork. He was like a cat.

I can't see any scneario where Hearns could win this. I could see him hurting Robinson but he'll never be able to follow up on much cause like most have already mentioned Ray was pretty much better than Tommy in every department save for maybe pure power.

Robinson by late rd TKO.
