Ray Leonard had more than "decent power." He was a damn hard hitter when he wanted to be. Not on the level of, say, a guy like Tommy Hearns, but yes, SRL could whack.
It has a lot to do with speed, timing and accuracy though. They're all factors in a devastating knockout punch like the ones on Green or Gonzalez.
