    Default The Kings documentary - Leonard, Hagler, Hearns and Duran

    Not sure if this was posted last year when it came out but I am 3 parts in to this brilliant doc series on the era of Leonard, Hagler , Hearns and Duran.

    It's on the Discovery Plus channel - you can take advantage of the 7 days free trial to watch it (4 x 1 hour episodes)

    Always miffed how they managed to totally ignore Wilfredo Benitez. He fought all but Hagler... and defeated Duran. Lost an MD to Hearns and a 15th round TKO loss to Leonard.

    Good call. I've heard these 4 for so long, until this post I forgot how special Benitez was inside the ring. And to be so young when he was on his game.
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    I always wonder why we forget about Wilfred Benitez in the equation?

    Duran was the greatest lightweight ever.
    Hagler was one of the greatest middleweight ever.
    Leonard was the 2nd greatest welterweight ever.
    Hearns was one of the greatest pound for pound boxers ever.

    When you compare their challengers to these Gods of boxing, then most do not meet the grade. The fact that Wilfred Benitez is mentioned as the missing 5th boxer, is a testament to how great he truly was.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Just finished it. Brilliant doc.

    I had completely forgotten that Leonard and Duran fought a 3rd bout - though as the doc says being forgotten about is the best thing for it.
