Default Re: Floyd or Duran - Most skilled?

Duran losing past his prime and past his best weight against ATG's adds nothing to the conversation about the comparison of skill between the two.

Again, Duran bringing Hagler to a close points decision at that age and weight took a display of more sheer craft than most, if not all, of Floyd's wins. Forget about who likes Duran or doesn't; he beat the better fighters with less physical advantages (often with disadvantages Floyd has never, and will likely never, face).
I wonder how floyd's D would hold up against hagler.
