Sugar Ray Leonard did splendid in the rematch, utilising his superior footwork and hand speed to frustrate Roberto Duran, a tactic he should have deployed in the first fight. Anyway, today he fights Larry Bonds, who looks more like a journeyman, strangely enough, so we can expect that there will be fireworks in this fight.
Sugar Ray Leonard reclaims his title and defends it against Larry Bonds.
This fight starts off very slowly, unlike in past fights. Sugar Ray Leonard takes the centre of the ring, but Larry Bonds appears to circle Sugar Ray from the outside, looking somewhat afraid to engage. This looks like a very interesting fight, since up till now, we haven’t seen any of Sugar Ray’s opponents utilise such methods.
