I totally agree that he wasnt getting school by Ray as some make it out. But he didnt train (said so in his book anyway), and had to lose a huge amount of weight in the days leading up to it.
I'm probably being a little unfair. Duran is my favourite fighter of all time, but i dont think he fancied it that night
