Default who wins ? ray leonard vs. terry norris , at 154 both prime

i say leonard.
leonard fought hagler a close fight.
stopped a prime hearns and went the distance with him another time.
the first to stop benitez , hearns later won a MD over him.
leonard was good 147-160.
somehow even won a title at 175 , he was far from being a legit 175 ,
lalonde also wasn't really a legit 175 , weighing 167 at the weighins.
does anyone imagine terry norris doing any of these ?
he only fought at 154 , retired aged 30 , stopped 4 times , lost 9.
leonard also was a terrific amateur , stopping andres aldama who stopped mccallum and outpointed mugabi.
for me a stoppage at the amateurs counts even more than at the pro's , when it's between two grown men.
to stop someone wearing a headgear at less than full 4 rounds , is more impressing.
