I also was not a Ray Leonard fan. I was rooting for Benitez in their bout.

Leonard’s comeback was disgusting. There was almost nothing that could stop them from creating their “boxing marketing” champion.
I wasn't either.  I can remember desperately rooting for Tommy Hearns and Duran.  
The 80's was definitely the last great decade for boxing imo. I don't even know who the heavyweight champ(s) is anymore.  I also don't care.  In the 80's there were numerous notable fighters at almost every weight class.  I boxed in the Army so I would watch them all with interest, especially the Welterweights.
