No. 10
Sugar Ray Leonard

Leonard originally retired as a world champion after suffering a detached retina in 1982. He returned for one fight in 1984 against Kevin Howard and then retired again. Then in 1987, Leonard came back for a historic bout against middleweight champion Marvin Hagler. Leonard, a huge underdog, won a controversial split decision to regain the belt.
