He made a terrible spur of the moment decision borne out of frustration.Ray wouldn't engage and Cholo never knew how to deal with it.He has a a fiery nature,and a consequence of that is making decisions without thinking them through.He walked away not realising for a second the implications that would follow.
There was no cowardice or stomach cramps,just impulse.
And there shouldn't be too much emphasis placed on him blowing up.Yes,Ray took advantage of that,but the loss wasn't a result of it.
Ray was starting to hit Duran's head and body in round 7 and poring it on in round 8 and Duran quit. I think Duran knew he was going to get knocked out.
