Sugar Ray Leonard
If Floyd “Money” Mayweather’s recent return to the ring has got you all misty eyed about the past, let’s take a look back at the top 6 boxers of all time. Will Mr Mayweather make this list that will surely contain the likes of Ali and Tyson?
Well, he’s not at number 6 on the list. That place is occupied by Sugar Ray Leonard. With 36 wins from 40 bouts and only 3 losses with 1 draw, “Sugar” has a formidable professional career that ran from 1977 when he beat Luis "The Bull" Vega in 6 rounds in front of 10,270 at the Civic Center in Baltimore until 1996, which was the fighter’s fifth comeback after retirement (if we’re counted correctly).
