Default Re: All of Duran excuses srl2

He was a great fighter and had a great lightweight reign, but no real ATG fighters at 135.. So what people are saying is his lightweight reign and the beating Ray the first time , but losing easily to Hearns,Benitez and Leonard and then giving Hagler what they say was a good fight but still losing, and then winning titles against Moore and Barkley gives him a top 10 ATG ranking. If we study the facts how can this be top 10 ATG? Top 25 fine, but not top 10, which is what my point always was. He was a great dominant fighter who had a weakness to a great fighter with speed who used the whole ring.[/quote]

thats what made him great, he was a lightweight who beat SRL at his weight of 147 and went up to middle weight to beat a champion
Do you think Marquez could beat mayweatehr at 147 today and then go to middleweight and beat one of the champions? Duran did lose but way above his best weight
