Benny Leonard was one of the most scientific boxers ever. He had fast hands, quick feet, an excellent jab, power in both hands, and great ring intelligence. He also had a gift for gab and constantly spoke to his opponents during fights.
When World War I broke out, Leonard joined the Army. He taught boxing and served as an instructor in Bayonet and hand-to-hand fighting. In 1918, he boxed exhibitions to help in War Bond drives.
He retired with a record of 186-22-8-4 (70 KO). Leonard was inducted into The Ring Hall of Fame in 1955, the World Boxing Hall of Fame in 1980, and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990.
