the name sugar ray. there can only be one.
I was talking to a friend of mine today about the merits of Leonard. he said yeah but he could have never stood up to the first sugar ray. I said no you're wrong! then I brought up but leonard took on both Duran and hernz and if that wasn't enough, hagler.
but he overcame with his even vaster knowledge of fisticanery going down the line with one robinson victim after another. Talk about blowouts.
I reluctantly walked away with my head bowed in defeat.
tell me people: isn't it possible that leonard could pull off an upset? If only had had more of a punch. if only he beat Terry Norris it would solidify his position as an all time great.
I didn't see much of robinson except after 1950 when he was already old. it's hard to tell that much about him. I get the feeling he would outgut leonard and hit a little too hard for him.
Roy Jones? Now that's another matter.
