I think in all walks of life our motivation change as we age and priorities differ. Ray Leonard undoubtly enjoyed the competive nature of world class amateur boxing and may not have turned pro is he would have got the endorsement opportunies of the decatholite bruce jenner. As ray was forced to turn pro for the money he did have great earning power and I am sure his legacy was important to him as well. He did for example regret taking the camacho fight at age 40.
