Sugar Ray on Pacquiao, Money May: "I'd knock 'em both out."
Of course, he was kidding when he said that...sort of.
Sugar Ray Leonard may be one of the best to ever lace on gloves, an Olympic gold medalist and six-division world champ who blended technique, tactics and tenacity like few others, but he has one thing in common with the rest of us.
He's a boxing fan.
His insights into a hypothetical superfight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather may carry more weight than mine or yours, but like me and you he'd rather see the fight than speculate about it.
But that didn't stop us from asking him a few questions about the fight we all want to see but might never witness.
Tuesday afternoon we caught up with Leonard to discuss his new autobiography, and after talking books he agreed to go twelve rounds with your favourite sportswriter, tackling topics from his favourite place to fight, to whether he deserved a draw in his rematch with Thomas Hearns, to how Mayweather and Pacquiao would fare against him in his prime.
Fun stuff as always, and props to Sugar Ray for his honesty.
