Default Re: Why no Benitez-Leonard rematch?

Round 15

Entering Round 15, Wilfred was behind on points, and his brother Gregorio told him
that he needed a knockdown in the round to get a Draw, and a knockout for a win.

Wilfred could have boxed, and easily made it through the round, but he went out
like a 'warrior' trying for a knockout win.

6-seconds were left in Round 15, after he was floored and took the mandatory
8-count. Wilfred could have easily made it to the bell.

It was a bout with equally talented boxers, but Ray Leonard was the stronger man
in the ring that night, and was the harder puncher.

Ray took the first 3-Rounds, and had a 2-point edge in Round 3 by scoring a 'flash-
knockdown'. That gave Ray a 30-26 point (4-point) lead after 3-Rounds.

From Rounds 4 thru 13 (10 Rounds), Wilfred had the edge 4-2-4 in Rounds.
