Default Re: In the last 30 years- p4p whose better than Sugar Ray Leonard


See, that's a trash response. How can you say... "Floyd can't do anything at this point to ever surpass Leonard." This is just crazy. You are putting Leonard on a pedastal that can't be reached, and that's wrong.

Sometimes no matter how much ability you have, in terms of opposition and legacy you can't catch up to someone else through no fault of your own. Be careful branding something trash before you fully understand what it is you're reading.

I'm not saying Leonard was a better boxer than Pretty Boy Floyd -- though I believe he was -- I'm saying that we're comparing Floyd to a man who came out on top during the deepest welterweight/middleweight era known to boxing. You tell me -- what can Floyd do to improve his resume so that it is better than a man who beat Roberto Duran,, Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns and Wilfredo Benitez, many of whom are regarded among the top 50 of all-time?
