Benitez outboxed Duran easily when he held his title in 1982 when he was champ. And about Benitez 2 years later, he broke his ankle and couldn't fight on. I am not sure what that fight meant. That is like the Mugabi/Rosi fight. Flukes happen. That is like saying James Kinchen beat Buster Drayton, so Kinchen was better than Davey Moore since Buster beat Davey Moore. I would say a head to head matchup of greats Benitez and Duran means much more. Duran was in shape as he said and he lost easily.
