Default Re: Sugar Ray Leonard; worthy of being a top 20 ATG

He's in, by a whisker.

In opportunist fashion, but, still, fair and square, the four legs on this stool are the scalps of: Thomas Hearns, Marvin Hagler, Wilfredo Benitez, Roberto Duran.

Throw in huge Lalonde for good measure.

As a fighter, Leonard had huge focus, speed, skill, chin, heart to hang with anyone.

You can't knock a man for looking for angles if, in the ring, where nobody can help you, he always delivered.

He was exciting and, in the end, acquitted the hype.
