As we all know - styles make fights. If you're going to pitch Leonard up against the entire set of welters going back to the beginnings of the sport he's bound to collide head-on with fighters whose physical attributes and/or skillsets are the "nightmare scenario" for a fighter such as Sugar Ray.

I have yet to see the fighter who found all shapes, sizes and styles equally easy to deal with. Southpaws are the example most often cited in this context - but it could just as easily be something like height (too tall, or too short) which throws the spanner in the works.

Perhaps it's better to talk more about the particular type of fighter which is most likely to knock out Ray than which fighter possessed sufficient power. After all - even a modestly powerful punch delivered at precisely the right point in time and space can leave a fighter flat on the canvas.
