[quote=Nate 2011;13603506]Sugar Ray Leonard hands down was my all time favorite. Meanwhile the exact order I would rate these four fighters in goes precisley:

Sugar Ray Leonard
Marvelous Marvin Hagler
Tommy "Hit Man" Hearns
Roberto Duran

All were great fighters that were involved in one of boxings many great matches of all time, including against each other, and they were all big time CCT/PPV high rated events, especially Sugar Ray Leonard's fights.[/quoteYa but puttin Duran last is a bols statement..

Ya but puttin Duran last on that laist is a bold statement..

I pick hearns just he was cold...Great combination fighter...One of the sharpest and fasest right hands ever..I think Tommy was the total package and when were kids up until now his fights are very entertaining...

I agree with --

1. Duran
2. Hearns/Hagler
3. Leonard

I like the way you made Hearns/Hagler interchangeable, as I like them both about the same.

One thing that really annoys me about Leonard. The two titles from two different weights in one fight against Lalonde. Thats what you call cheating. You need to have to separate fights to achieve such a feat. Many other fighters work their ass off in two separate fights to win titles in two different weight divisions.

Anyone who supports and justifies Leonard as a legitimate 5 weight world champion needs to have a look in the mirror.

I actually rate Mayweather as a legit 5 weight world champion with alphabet belts. Leonard, I don't.
