I just wish he'd stayed at 126 as he didn't have the body (or hands) to campaign successfully at the higher weights.Once they began to match his strength and he didn't have the power to keep them honest anymore,that's when the rot set in.
A little bit off topic but do you remember Jeff's fight with Daniel Zaragoza John?
I remember it as a very one sided beating and I'm wondering if that's how it went.It was a very good underrated win for Fenech anyway.
Fenech was actually more ferocious and less controlled than Duran for sure. My fading memory of the Zaragoza fight was Jeff was too good and won handily.
