So why do you think L is stronger, John?

Opinions will vary on this 1 as neither have ever lost at this weight & quite often both looked unbeatable at the weight but who comes out on top, robinson or leonard.

Robinson saw off henry armstrong by a dazzling 21 votes to 2 while Leonard did likewise to jose napoles by 23 votes to 9.

Who is all time welterweight king, you have 2 days to decide, make your vote count.
We have a fabricator on the forum. Funny how he thought he could sneak that one in.

Well put.

I think it's not impossible - the fact is though, Robinson is the proven fighter when it comes to strength, having operated in the weight division above without looking bullied. Going into the fight I would be quite confident that Robinson was stronger until Leonard showed otherwise. If it happened I would be very surprised, and it would be interesting to see Robinson trying to find the correct adapation (a burden that would have been on Leonard previously).
