    The Sanchez-Nelson fight tells me MORE about Nelson that it does about Sal.

    Sal is an all time great and he should have never struggled with somebody like Nelson at that stage of their respective careers.

    As I said?I cannot give LOT of points to Sal based on Nelson?s fight. I give lot of points to Nelson for what he did against Sal.

    Was Randy Turpin "green" when he beat Ray Robinson, or was it the other way around?
