    I'm one of the few on this site old enough to remember Robbie Simms......he was a very good fighter. As far as being "great" goes, that might be a slight stretch.

    He is # 653 on the all time great list (depending on how the Manny Pacquiao vs Antonio Margarito fight turns out) :D

    He was only stopped once, throughout his entire carrer and that was by the Dark Destroyer, so he was tough. Good fighter, but apart from Duran and Barkley, he lost to the fighters that could have cemented his rep.
