This is how I have it. Gavilan was a great in his own right. It was only Sugar Ray Robinson's existence preventing him from becoming dominant at welterweight for quite a number of years. Nonetheless,on the night that Leonard beat Thomas Hearns,in their first fight,Robinson would have been the only one at that weight I would bank on beating him,with a sufficient degree of certainty.
