Default Was SRL one of the best finishers of all time?

In my opinion at 147 Leonard is one of if not the best finishers of all time, even though some people underestimate his power once he got you in trouble you were done. His KO percentage at 147 is staggering And rather people want to admit to it or not he KO,d alot of great fighters in his time. So do you believe that his finishing skills were superior to other WW,s in history, If not who and why?

He's superior to a lot of other WW's, full stop. Like every single one of them, bar Robinson.

He's as good a finisher as I've ever seen ever. Any division. Tremendous, rapid-fire, fluid combos and relentless in his drive to close the show.

I struggle to remember anyone he had hurt, but didn't finish off. You could argue that he didn't really finish off Benitez, I suppose...

I'd add that he a.Ran out of time and b. The ref stepped between em

40 more seconds and Steve Smoger, Benitez is still getting stopped.

Well he had Hearns hurt earlier in the fight and couldn't finish him. Of course later in the fight he ended it anyways but I think he definitely could've ended it way earlier.
