Default Better Resume: Ray Leonard Vs. Pernell Whitaker

This is inspired by some silliness over in NSB the past couple of days. So, instead of featuring the active fighters how about a discussion of the two historical fighters those active fighters were being compared to? Discuss!

Ray Leonard....

Benitez, Duran, Hagler, Hearns etc.

Don't think it's much more complex than that.

ray leonard


short but incredible resume if you're looking at the heart of it. in his prime he beat duran, hearns, and benitez. not just great fighters but bonafide ATG's. all three went on to do great things after they fought leonard. benitez and hearns were undefeated when leonard fought them.

very few fighters can boast wins like those.

in his prime he only lost to roberto duran.

well beyond his prime he went on to fight close with hagler and get a dub. hagler was likewise not what he once was, of course.

i tend to lend toward a hagler win, but i was born and still live and work within 30-40 miles from where hagler used to live and work, so i'm biased.
i may drive by brockton this afternoon on business, and i'll have to hold my nose!

Floyd Mayweather. More champions, Duran is Baldomir.

Very few fighters go above Leonard when it comes to resume, and Whitaker isn't one of them.

Whitaker definitely has deeper resume, he stayed on top for 10 straight years consistently fighting top-notch fighters and in reality staying undefeated all the way to De la Hoya fight that was also razor thin. Leonards "big wins" on the other hand are way above ones of Sweet Pea and I think that's more important factor where it comes to rating fighters achievements.
So Leonard, but it's close.

AFAIC

1) Leonard has only a few good wins. They are great, but they are very few.

2) Whitaker beat everyone fair and square, and -IMO- was never on the receiving end of a gift, quite the opposite.

3) There are some asterisks next to some of SRL's best wins.

Hence to me Whitaker has the best resume. Boom!

I think Wilfredo Rivera beat Whitaker in their first fight. Not a "robbery", but I think he edged it. Doesn't really matter as Pea showed who was boss in the rematch.
