My Dad used to tell me that the Rocket was someone nobody (except maybe Ted Lindsey) would want to p***off, and that he was a very good fighter. I never had a chance to see him though.
If you use the boxing pound for pound terminology,nobody was tougher than the Pocket Rocket. Early on,Boston figured the best way to drive Maurice nuts was to go after his diminutive brother. One of my favorite stories, Boston sent their 3 toughest guys,Fern Flaman, Jack Bionda, Leo Labine after him, and Henri fought all 3 and held his own.
