Sugar Ray Leonard wins a clear decision.
Still backing Floyd.
You sure convinced me.
I see no reason not to
which person did he fight who was as skilled as floyd
Can't the same be said in reverse? I think Leonards size and athleticism give him the edge. Good fight though
no it cant floyd fought people like zab and others who was fast and size is not enough to give floyd problems that quote is bad to use dont know why you people use that
floyd has to be hit often by a person who can move good to stop him from using his defense alot
Still think this plays out like Leonard-Benitez, minus the KD's and last second stoppage.
Randy Shields, Andy Price.
Not really a fair comparison as Floyd started at super feather whereas Leonard was a welterweight from the beginning. I suppose it can be argued that Floyd was still in his prime at welterweight when he moved up, even though he was about 30.
Anyway, Leonard would clearly decision Floyd and may even stop him.
Floyd has some excellent names on his resumé at welter, including Pacquiao, but it has been mentioned a million times by credible posters that he didn't face all of them at their peak - and that obviously includes Pacquiao.
Leonard fought and beat three ATGs at welterweight who were phenomenally skilled (Benitez, Duran, Hearns, for the avoidance of doubt) and at least two of them were clearly more dangerous than Floyd. And they were all prime.
Seems a likely scenario.
wrong was missing stuff a person who had every talent floyd had which was it
that doesn't work for me when a person fought a person that has nothing to do with skill and style who did sugar fight who had all floyd had or close to
all I know in style was the orginal floyd who wasnt a compare to the famous floyd we know cause thats the way we usually compare a style similar
Or FMJ might counter and outpoint him.
