Only you MAG could warp this, SIGNIFICANT!!! Leonard was a private contract $1 Million an ounce penalty clause weight rigging bastard.


Leonard publicly stated that he was gonna knock Duran out & he ran like a dog again when all he had in front of him was a puffed up old man who desperatly needed the $$$$ to pay the IRS so he could have his exit visa re-instated.

16,000 attendees boo'd SRL out of the ring! It was the ultimate celeb walkout fight & that was why Leonard was finished in vegas. He LIED!!! Oh what a suprise!!! New York was the only town that would have him after that thief in the night performance against Duran. Leonard VARIABLE???? If that duplicitus cunt was so confident then why did he handcuff Duran to a private contract weight stipulation!!!

Duran is SRL's bogeyman & he still ai'nt got over the ass kicking he got in Montreal & thats why he did his walz at the Mirage when he'd promised all in sundry that he had unfinished bizz with Duran & was going to knock him out!! Leanard "bottled it" His arse went!! He did'nt fancy backing his gob up & ending up on his arse. He said he would stand & trade juxtaposed with his popeye physique you'd think he'd grow a pair & tear into old fatman duran, he did in the 11th round when the boo's & roars of BULLSHIT! BULLSHIT! reached a creshendo & Duran smashed him one in the chops & SRL could'nt get on onto his bike fast enough.

That 3rd fight was only significant in the fact that at last even the boxing casual could now see through the SRL smoke & mirrors show & it finished him! Well! TERRY NORRIS finished him & rid the public of an arch manipulator who did more damage to the sport than any other fraud out there & we still live with SRL's damage today in the shape & form of Floyd Mayweather jr.

No credit was given for Ray who absolutely fought a different fight. If you compare the first and second fights Ray's foot movement is totally different as was his gameplan. Duran's was not. That is why I say Ray was the variable. And he did it in two fights post June of 1980, one fight 9 years later.
Sorry mate. Not this time.

I certainly didn't create a new account to troll. This is my one an only account. What is the basis for saying I made a new troll account.. which threads support this notion?

CALL ME CRAZY. Call me paranoid. Call me even one noid. But that's what I'm thinking. There's been quite a growth spurt in these accounts chiming in on classic and now they're really starting to make up a decent percentage of the discussion I've been seeing. But, I wish them well.
I think this is what he's talking about. I'm franks alt if that means anything.

O I C.

I think I swore this entire topic off in this thread, so I've hardly read through it post-for-post.

No you're not.

The first fight was a pretty evenly matched fight. In fighting Duran's fight Leonard gave him advantages. When two boxers have two diffrent styles in a close fight, judges often side with the boxer who's style the fight is being fought in. While Leonard wasn't a backfoot slick boxer. He wasn't a pressure fighter like Duran either.
