At what weight?
Duran nearly koed Leonard.
Chavez does it.
Leonard wins first 6 rounds until Chavez starts landing his counter right. Leonard cannot hurt JCC. Chavez faced a faster and equal combination thrower with Meldrick Taylor.
Once Chavez starts getting close, Leonard has to move. JCC was perhaps the best ever cutting off the ring. It is just a matter of time.
Chavez by KO in round 11
This is why I don't post as much.
You didn't even stipulate what weight.
Leonard too fast, too big and too good.
Chavez was undersized even for 140, Ray was not a small welterweight. This is a borderline mismatch.
Leonard by TKO in 7. Similar to the Dela Hoya fights. Chavez was past his prime & too small at 147. He was never a natural 147lber & would get soundly beaten while losing every round until he most likely gets stopped.
Chavez is quite a bit higher P4P.
Duran was considered undersized too. Chavez has an even better chance to KO Leonard although not as good a chance to outpoint him.
Wtf is this thread
I assume this is at 147lbs, Chavez was never at his best at this weight and was way undersized Leonard should win this pretty comfortably. It would be a classic example of good big man beats good little man.
Leonard is simply too big and athletic for Chavez. Late stoppage.
Sugar Ray Leonard vs Julio Caesar Chavez Sr. This fight, I am assuming would be at 147 lbs, which Ray would have too much speed and stamina to lose to a very game Chavez. Remember that Leonard has taken the best from such greats as Wilfred Benitez, Roberto Duran, Thomas The Hitman Hearns, and Marvelous Marvin Hagler. Julio was near defeat against Meldrick Taylor on March 17 1990 until the last twelve seconds of that bout, until the knockout. Taylor's speed hampered Chavez, Leonard can punch and has more speed and stamina than Taylor. Ray is not going to stand still and let Julio hit him. Chavez was one of the greats, no doubt but in this one, he is out of his league, Leonard TKO 10.
Leonard one-sided decision.
He's bigger faster hits harder has better movement.
