    Yes, Yamashita’s record says it all: lost a match in college, was berated for it by his coach, then didn’t lose another one in competition anywhere in the world for 8 years and over 200 straight bouts. In open-weight competition, where he was not always the biggest. Where all-time competitive greatness is concerned, apologies to M. Douillet, but everybody else fights for second place.
