Leonard's best victories were Duran and Hearns.

So, Johnson's great legacy is based on beating a 6 year retired boxer turned Alfalfa farmer who had zero tune-ups before fighting for the world championship? This is better than beating Langford, McVea and Jeanette? You mustn't think much of them.
OK I was just checking whether you had the prerequisite level of intelligence to understand the difference between legacy, ability and achievement, but you clearly don't
