Overated!!! Shite statement
Considering he was meant to be all washed up in late 82, he thrashes Cuavas, BUTCHERS the next in-line potential superstar in Davey Moore, 5 months later takes the almighty leap in taking on the 160 Undisputed Monster in Marvin Hagler & is the only man to take him the full 15 rounds in a close fight & thats a blown up Lightweight who 4 years previous was still Lightweight Champion & he he is fighting for the Undisputed 160 crown, which the likes of Hearns & SRL wanted absolutely no part of!
Cuavas/Moore/Hagler all in a 12 month period after being written off!
Gets sparked in 2 by the Hearns, then 5 years later at 37 beats the man who beat him in Iran Barkley & decks him on the way to become WBC 160 Kingpin!
Name me another liniel World Lightweight champion who won the liniel World Middleweight Title! Yer CAN'T!!!
Thats why Roberto Duran is know as: DURAN the GREAT.
