Try winning a round without throwing a single punch! Sounds crazy and foolish to even try yet it has been done! When you think of defensive minded fighters you think of names such as: Mayweather, Whitaker, Toney…but what about Pep? Willie Pep won his first title at the age of 20 and won his first 62 fights before his first lost via decision. He had a very impressive record of 134-1-1 when he finally lost his title to Sandy Saddler they went back and forth the title with Saddler coming out on top at the end. I’ve watched numerous videos on Pep with nothing in particular jumping off the screen. I did notice he had great footwork and used the ring with a great boxing IQ decent not great power but VERY defensively skilled. He finished his career with a record of 229 wins with only 11 losses those numbers are amazing compared to todays fighters. So now I ask you all where do you rank Pep? I suggest watch the few videos about him most with Bert Sugar involved, few floating fights involving Pep and look at his ring savvy. Ask yourself then where do you rank the great Willie Pep?
