What I'm saying is that both Benvenuti and Griffith could have/would have beaten Hearns or Duran..they were both better middles...with Napoles, it's concievable that his great bugaboo...CUTS, would have been his weakness vs Leonard. I don't subscribe to the theory that Napoles was the welterweight Henry Cooper like so many in this forum think, but Leonard had the speed of hand to capitalize on that percieved weakness, and that's how he would have beaten Mantequilla.and not through any superiority in terms of skills.
