  1. Second fight was not out boxing Duran it. Was all about a conspiracy against Duran Dundee knew about Duran eating habits and partying after fights they demanded bigger ring and and all sort of demands to get an advantage on Duran plus Eleta solid out Duran by signing the fight very soon not giving Roberto time to prepare

  2. I know what the conventional wisdom is online, but honestly, I don't think Leonard gets enough credit for that Hagler fight. It was highly impressive especially considering his inactivity and size disadvantage. The result was not a robbery.

  3. In his prime I think he had one of the fastest hands and combinations ever. Not the strongest
    puncher; not as elusive as Roy Jones jr., but speed-wise he was pure epicness – in his prime.

    I think he won the decision against Hagler fairly. The last fight against Hearns he should
    have lost, though – those knockdowns he suffered were vicious.
