Benny Leonard, aka “The Ghetto Wizard,” remains, without a doubt, one of the greatest boxers, pound-for-pound, to ever enter a ring. And in his latest video, Lee Wylie shows you why.
“He was the fastest thinking fighter I ever saw. Having been around Benny, if anyone was ever close to him it was Sugar Ray Robinson. When people ask me who was the greatest boxer I ever saw, I hesitate to say either one. But Leonard’s mental energy surpassed everyone else’s. He was a picture — the one fighter who I felt could name the round with anyone.” — Hall of Fame trainer Ray Arcel
