Point me again to his best two or three destructive ko's over good durable opposition? Oh hang on, he doesn't have any

The fact is Bernard is one of the lesser punchers in the history of the division. Solid but as far as it goes. Even Larry Merchant said he never had a real punch and you're comparing him with Hagler and Roldan.
Larry also said Leonard beat Hagler. That seals it beyond doubt of course

In Bernard's favor, he was durable with loads of stamina but he could be outpointed.
Unlike hundreds of other great fighters who never were, or even could be outpointed right?

I still don't understand tho how feather fisted Jermaine was able to hurt someone like Bernard. What happened there?
Probably something about as meaningful as Roldan dropping Hagler i'd say
