    Do you think had you had a real fight with the 1989 version of Ray Leonard you beat him?

    Remember Donny Lalonde was nailing him also and he found a way. The same with the 2nd Hearns fight. Had that gone 15 rounds. Same results

    I mean retired from 1982-1987. To me thats where he lost a lot of his skills, speed and snap and probably why he was reluctant to take on younger fighters like Michael Nunn and Mike McCallum.

    You dont think it would have been that much of a difference. Ray at 147 is much quicker than the 1988 version. Hand and foot speed. His in and out movement was very quick and better stamina back then.

    He also had more snap in his punches. Remember he was retired from 1982-1982. Even in the Hagler fight i thought he looked much slower than when he was at 147. The snap wasn’t the same.

    Youtube some of his old fight, but the ones where he isnt champion yet. That snap on his shots. When he was older it was like he was pushing his punches. In that Hearns fight he looked so slow.

    YeS I do agree a younger Ray Leonard would have been different. I really do not think that much of a difference.

    Honestly in a real fight dont you think Ray would have probably fount you different and maybe boxed more. Also the 1989 version of SRL is so slow.

    Much slower than the 1978 to 1982 version

    Ray punished me early as I said in the article mailnly because of fear and conditioning but once I got into better shape the rest was history. Yes at that point in Rays career he was easy to hit and I was hitting him at will. Like I said I was holding back.

    Hey dude, Hearns smashed Sugar in this fight. Only reason it was draw is because Ray looked like he wanted it more in the 12th and the judges loved him. Hearns never looked good at the end of a fight. I never understood that part of his game. Was Ray that easy to hit when you spared him?
