Default Re: Ray Leonard vs. Bobby 'Boogaloo' Watts 'Bad Chicken'

It was from Jack McKinney, Philadelphia sports journalists and radio talk show host.

After conversations with Russell Peltz, discussing Ray Leonard's move to 154 lbs.,
and a possible January 1979 fight date.

Bobby 'Boogaloo' Watts was ready to go, but Mike Trainer had a change of mind, and
the Ray Leonard Team went after, Fernand Marcotte, the Canadian
Light-Middleweight Champion, who was a safer opponent - in February 1979.

In January 1979.........The Boogaloo was too dangerous.
