There is truth to what you say but at the same time, I think that Leonard and Hearns were huge WW at that time and I think would dominate today.

I can't see Pac or Floyd being able to avoid that buzzsaw called Hearns with his length and power and Leonard was stronger than people give him credit for. He was one of the greatest combination of speed, power and intelligence this sport has ever seen.

Actually.... Back in ray's day welter where true welters...meaning they weighed in the day off...thus they pretty much weighed around the or less than the 147 limit. Today, is different. A person can train down to make a weight, then add a lot of weight before fight time, meaning, Floyd probalby always was a jr welter or Welter, when he entered the ring.

Chuvalo isn't a fool, that's ignorant on your part. He probably has some reasons for his opinion but they weren't shown in the video.

It's also quite superficial to think just by size.

Did you just call Ray and Hearns 'old school' fighters? How ****ing old are you? Three?

Most people on this site that aren't three years old actually grew up with those guys. They are as contemporary as anyone in boxing. You know they were fighting through the eighties and nineties?

They didn't fight in 1920! For ****s sake! Ray Leonard and Tommy Hearns old school.....

Why not watch them fight and maybe you'll understand why everyone, apart from rabid fans of Floyd and Pac, would say they would totally dominate everyone in and around WW today.

Pac gets caught with Cotto's jab easily and caught with quite a few punches in general yes? How is he going to avoid two of the fastest and most powerful WW's the sport has ever seen. Hearns would stop him with the first right hand he landed I'm sorry to say and he's just way too quick, tall, too skilled and powerful for Pac or Floyd to deal with.

Leonard is much the same. He could outbox or outslug either guy. Sit back and pick Pac off and then slam home a brutal left hook. Anyone that thinks the WW's of today beat those two guys are out of their minds. It was a different time of vastly superior fighters.

SRL wouldnt beat Pac. When SRL was slightly past it, he was losing to guys like terry norris. There was a thin line between victory and defeat for SRL types.

Mayweather is the most skilled fighter of all time. Mayweathers prime is at 130, in a P4P sense hes ahead of Leonard and Hearns.
Huh? What? Do mine eyes deceive me?

Ray Leonard, the guy who traded shot for shot over fifteen rounds with both Duran and Hearns, who is so far ahead of Pac in terms of one punch KO power it's not funny (hell, he's miles ahead of everyone bar one or two guys) as well as Hagler at 160 and yet Leonard is going to suddenly crumble under Pac's shots?

I really don't think so.

Man, this board is going really loopy. Leonard had one of the toughest beards in the sport. If Hearns can't put him down, no one's putting him down. The only guy that's getting stopped if they trade is Pac.

If Leonard lands a flush shot, Pac goes. If Pac lands a flush shot, it stuns Leonard but no more.
