If you go to Australia and show some guy off the street a pic of Pac or Money Mai, I could just about guarantee they wouldn't have a clue who they are. Show them a pic of Oscar, Ali, Leonard, Tyson, Duran, Chavez, Holyfield etc and they know who it is immediately. I even remember some guys crapping on about Pac doing more and being bigger and more known worldwide than Ali.

The fame Pac has now used to be normal for the top champs of most eras. Boxing has dwindled in popularity so much that what he has done people think hasn't been done before. It's sad.

Anyway, great videos. Really are pure cheese.
if you're talking about the EVERYDAY ppl, not necessarily a boxing fan, then i could agree w/ oscar,ali,tyson. somehow only w/ duran, leonard and chavez. definitely not w/ holyfield.

pacquiao may be up there w/ leonard,duran, chavez.

He is talking about Australia, but around the world, it's all different, but guranteed around the world, no doubt on Ali and Tyson. No doubt.

Hatton has amde Floyd well known here is some respects and Manny too, not many famous Asians in the world.

There is no question that Sugar Ray Leonard was one of the most popular athletes of his era.His fame and popularity transcended the sport of boxing,and arguably even sports in general.And his appeal wasn't limited to the United States like a De La Hoya.



Great fighter,handsome,articulate,well-dressed,well-mannered,and a credit to his race - the human race.
