Default Could Sugar Ray Leonard have been even greater than he was?

OK First thread - Here goes......

I have just finished reading the Sugar Ray Leonard Autobiography 'The Big Fight' and what a good read it was. I highly reccomend it (for what thats worth haha)

Anyway two questions came to mind on more than one occassion whilst reading the book;

If SRL had not had his problems with drink and drugs, would he have had an even better record? (maybe an obvious answer to that really I know but its more a discussion point than a question I guess)

and

Did his numerous retirements help or hinder him in terms of his record? i.e. did the breaks he took help keep him in better condition due to not being in as many bouts and taking as many punches as he would have, or did the ring rust he no doubt experienced let him down in bouts he would have otherwise won?

Your thoughts......

Cheers

You should know by now that intelligent posts do not work in this Forum.
