it is a size comparison. not a fighter comparison. It shows you the ridiculousness of the fights he took

roberto duran- ht. 5'7 reach 66"

ray leonard- ht. 5'10 reach 74"

tommy hearns- ht. 6'1 reach 78"

marvin hagler- ht. 5'9 1/2" reach 75"

interesting.

duran beat leonard...2nd fight even though leonard gets major credit for it, i'm not convinced it was on the level because of comments i've heard from ray and angelo. the 3rd fight didn't even happen til '89. leonard admitted he couldn't beat duran on equal terms.

leonard beat hearns the first time....but i thought they robbed tommy in the rematch. leonard has admitted that he thought tommy won. 1st fight was the shit! i remember it like it was yesterday.

hagler beat hearns in what is and forever will be my all time favorite fight. he beat duran...and i thought he beat leonard. i thought he held back against both.

hearns beat duran by vicious ko. that was the best he ever looked....and the worst duran ever looked. great ko for tommy.

so duran is the only one to beat leonard...officially. leonard has questionable victories over duran, hearns and hagler. hagler had the most impressive victory over tommy. tommy had the most impressive victory over duran.

i guess an argument can be made for any of these guys really if u look at what they accomplished outside of their fights against each other. something i cannot take away from any of them....they all wanted to prove their greatness....and they all did imo. these guys were all cut from different clothes and fighters like them don't seem to exist these days.
