Well and having a few monsters on your side doesn’t hurt.Wayne Gretzky, a skinny pipsqueak that dominated a sport of giant goons. For as amazing as he was at scoring his own goals (all-time record holder) he was even double and triple better at setting up & assisting his teammates for goals. He had so many assists that even if he had never scored one single goal in his whole career he'd still hold the all-time combined NHL points record because he had so many assists.
He showed that you don't have to be a monster to excel in a world of monsters... you just need the brains to avoid trouble and know how to get to the right place at the right time.
Great fighter. Hagler got absolutely robbed in that fight.This is tuff. I have a bunch of favorites but if I had to pick just one it’s got to be;
Sugar Ray Leonard.
He won Gold in the 1975 Olympics in Montreal.
He held world titles in 5 weight divisions.
He was the undisputed Welterweight champ in a time where those weight classes were loaded with some talented fighters.
He fought and beat some of the best; Roberto “Hands of Stone” Duran, Thomas “The hit man” Hearns, “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler.
I believe him to be considered in the top 15 all time boxers pound for pound. These rankings though they say pound for pound still lend themselves to the big boys in my opinion. If Sugar Ray Leonard was a heavy weight and accomplished what he did, he would be considered one of the top 3 or 4 all time in my opinion.
