Default Re: duran v leonard greatness comparison.

I believe Benitez is overrated as a welterweight champion.
Leonard too - perhaps by extension.
And, yes, as great as it was, Duran's win over Leonard is overrated, or at least it's given a 'special' rating for the wrong reasons, imo.
Any time a lightweight champ moves up and captures the welter crown it's a big deal, imo, especially from a good or great fighter.
I think people tend to put SRL almost on a par with SRRobinson though, or something like that.
