Sugar Ray Leonard Says He Would’ve Beaten Floyd Mayweather
Ray Charles Leonard, professionally known as “Sugar Ray,” mentions during an interview that he could’ve beaten Floyd Mayweather, Jr. while in his prime.
Currently, Floyd “Money” Mayweather is the premier boxer of the sport. However, decades ago, that premier name belonged to Sugar Ray Leonard — especially concerning his weight class.
These days, it’s hard to say that anyone trains as hard as Floyd Mayweather. He doesn’t have an undefeated record “by chance.” It has come with decades of hard work and perseverance.
While Sugar Ray Leonard claims he was better than Floyd, he also doesn’t tout an undefeated record like Mayweather.
During an interview with Undisputed, host Skip Bayless asks Leonard: “At your greatest, were you better than Floyd Mayweather?”
To this, Sugar Ray responds, “Absolutely.”
