Re: Sugar Ray Leonard; worthy of being a top 20 ATG
I wouldn't rank Benitez, Hearns or Duran among the top 10 welterweights of all-time. Not even sure if any of them get in the top 15.
People talk a lot about these 'top wins' for Sugar Ray Leonard. Yeah, they are enough to say he was one of the great welterweights. But they don't turn him into a pound-for-pound marvel of the type of Greb, Langford, Robinson. Nowhere near. Not even close.
Therefore a lot must resting on his 'miracle' comeback against Hagler, a tremendous achievement but I fight I thought he narrowly lost.
