Re: Sugar Ray Leonard; worthy of being a top 20 ATG
There are tons of great fighters, Leonard does not have the longevity to hang with many of them.
Great for time, just not long enough, and always avoided fighting other ATG unitl after they had declined.
Best fights... Duran 1.... Lost
Hearns 1..... Great victory, but beaten most of fight
Benitez...... Great win.
Hearns 2.... * years late, and lost
Duran 2.... Great strategy of catching Duran after parties wieght gain.
Hagler 1.... Waited till Hagler was NO LONGER an ATG. Good fighter still but not great. Won on cards ( I thought he lost )
He had tremendous talent and intelligence. Great adaptability. Great fighter.
But top 20..... NO
