I think Robinson had some serious balls for being willing to get in the ring while probably being 160 against a guy who would be at least 190. Not to mention jumping from middleweight to heavyweight. I think it could go either way, in my opinion Robinson would just be too fast for Patterson, and a prime Sugar could keep peppering him with jabs, moving around the ring, and landing power punches. I don't see Patterson being hurt by him, just being outpointed.
I really wish they made this fight back in the day lol.
I can see your point of view but Floyd had middleweight hand speed & Robinson was a 147 fighter at his peak. P4P it is no contest but in actuality I think Floyd would be just too big physically although they were similar in size Floyd had a bigger frame.
