Re: IBHOF Careers: Sugar Ray Leonard
Watched the Floyd Mayweather and Donny Lalonde fights today.
In the Laonde fight He starts slow but comes on at the end before getting the knockout.
I didn't score ether fight. I have the sense I would have given Lalonde the first four rounds and Leonard the next four before the stoppage in the 9th.
I need to go back and score the Mayweather bout. It seemed like Mayweather would win the first 2:00 of each round and Leonard the last 1:00, but in that last :60 Leonard landed the better punches. I think the stoppage was premuture but what should have been a +2 advantage for Leonard I think he would have won on my card had it gone the distance.
In both fights Leonard shows his stringth when both Lalonde and Mayweather tries to hold when they are hurt and Leonard is able to break free and land punches.
