All were great fighters that were involved in one of boxings many great matches of all time, including against each other, and they were all big time CCT/PPV high rated events, especially Sugar Ray Leonard's fights.[/quoteYa but puttin Duran last is a bols statement..

Ya but puttin Duran last on that laist is a bold statement..
Maybe, but at least I have him on there and like the others I acknowledge him as a great fighter of that era and any era for that matter/P.F.P the greatest all-time Latino fighter, but keep in mind that Duran didn't exactly have a winning record against his three peers. His record against them overall is 1-4, the one win of course coming in the first fight with Leonard which went the 15-round distance. And if you throw in his January, 1982 HBO fight with that era's #5 guy and H.O.F. Wilfred Benitez that would make it 1-5, but for the fair sake of the articles title will stick with the top four and say 1-4.
