Duran never fought with this consistent pace and intensity again though.You would need a good punch and a helluva workrate to keep this version from storming in and making it an ugly fight.
He showed shades of this relentlessness in the Dejesus 2 fight but not from beginning to end, he at least tried to box from range at times vs Dejesus... vs Ken he just made it a war of attrition from the get-go.
