Let me answer both questions with some more.

...do you really want to hurt me?

Do you really want to make me cry?

(Precious kisses, words that burn me...

Lobo never asks me why. )

Well, first off you would need to believe that I saw the Ecklund KD as legitimate (which only Dicky himself does, AFAIK...plus maybe some Lowell residents but certainly the rest of us Mass-holes see it for the push/slip it was...)

Second you would need to swallow my stance that such a knockdown if legitimate could sully the record of a consensus ATG enough to affect his comparative all-time rating.

Third you would need to accept my full embrace of the hypocrisy of such a sentiment despite every known ATG having at least some bit of comparable 'dirt' on them one could use (and many trolls do use, daily) to discredit them...




...but if you're still confused...


Yes. Dead serious. Ray was a freaking bum.

Ray also knocked the shit out of Danny Bonaduce. That alone gets him into the top 30

When you dethrone a young, quality champion like Wilfredo Benitez, a high-flying, pound-for pound all-time great champion like Roberto Durán, an all-time great, fearsome, peak champion like Thomas Hearns, and an undisputed middleweight monster champion like Marvin Hagler, you get the accolades of a Sugar Ray Leonard.
