Default Re: Benny Leonard was the greatest lightweight of all time - by a long way

You do realise Bill that Benny fought in many charity bouts judged by the local newspaper which were often short 4-6 rounds, fighters were encouraged to go the rounds to give the crowd a show (a lot of the write ups for Benny's fights talk of him boxing circles around his opponants and coasting, doing what he had to)..His knockout percentage in title fights is nothing to scoff at, in fact its something like 75% and considering the opposition he beat thats pretty good.
