same thing goes with me. No one can convince me that Duran is 1-10 ATG. He is top 25, and he fought everyone he could have. Great fighter, but the wins against the legends is what I think prevents him from being 1-10. This is about 1-10 ATG. If it is that he is a great fighter, we have no discussion.
That is my criteria. Being dominant is one thing, but against who is important. Sure he moved up in weight, but most of thegreats fought big fights outside their best weight. Hearns was supposedly his best at 147 and 154, but he fought another 23 fights above that weight. But he did fight Shuler, Hagler, Leonard, Hill,Roldan,Olajide,Kinchen etc above his beat weight. And it does affect his legacy, but he also beat greats Cuevas,Benitez,Duran at 147 and 154.
