    Hello Z and another great question too! Howard Davis Jr. was blessed with great hand speed and was an Olympic Gold Medal Champion and most experts even rated him over Sugar Ray Leonard as far as becoming a great professional which of course didn't pan out that way as he always seemed to lose big fights during his career. Benny Leonard is easily one of the greatest lightweight Champs in boxing history and one of the all time greatest p4p fighters too as he combined ring intelligence with good punching power and toughness. And he hade excellent hand speed and good movement in the ring. In other words by all accounts, he was a complete fighter. Davis Jr. has the ability to give Leonard some problems early in the fight but the Ghetto Wizard would turn it around and outsmart and outwork Davis Jr.

    Leonard W15
