Leonard did catch some flack in the boxing magazines for the Lalonde bout. Some were calling it a farce that never should've taken place.
Leaonard got a lot of heat from the Lalonde fight. Picking the weakest champion and forcing him down in weight. Damn Leonard would have caught hell on NSB although one would think he'd have a lot of credit from the Hagler fight.
If Floyd had the balls of Ray Leonard he'd fight Pavlik just like Leonard fought Hagler even though Hagler was a much more frightening character than this days MW champ.
