Computer Results,,,,,,

Ray Robinson stops Ray Leonard by a TKO 11.

Ray Robinson scores a 'flash knockdown' in Round 5.

Ray Leonard will put together a 'functional comeback' in Rounds 7 and 8,
but by Round 9, Ray Robinson takes over..

Robinson will drop a 'battered' Ray Leonard 'twice' in Round 10.

Ray Leonard comes out for Round 11, with swollen features, and after a brief
exchange, Ray Robinson lands a flurry to Leonard's damaged eye's, forcing him to turn
away, where the Referee stops the bout.

The weird thing is, I went with Gavilan while reading through a thread about Leonard and went with Leonard while reading through a thread about Gavilan.

Soooooooooooooooo...maybe I'm just a ****.

It can be difficult to hold a firm position on positions. What else could you expect from the greatest division in the history of boxing.

Leonard was a little better on the inside. Maybe a shade better defensivley. Some of that may be because Robinson had bigger power he took more chances.

Leonard and Robinson would probably be a series of fights. I think Leonard could take 1 out of 3.

I'd pick Leonerd over anyone at 147. He's shown he can beat guys who are probbly better than him in terms of skills and who have a size advantage over him. I think Robinson is more skilled, but if the two Sugar Ray's met I'd go with Leonard.

Ray would beat Robinson, both would easily destroy Floyd.

Would be a bit concerning if they couldn't. Arguably the two greatest natural welterweight talents ever, against a guy who was clearly at his best at 130-140.
