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.
Legs on a stool? More the tires on his 4x4. Quite remarkable that only Hagler went the distance.
