Re: How highly do you rank Roberto Duran as a welterweight?
At lt weight he was the greatest in my lifetime. KO punch in either fist, super quick, fight non stop 15 rounds without issue, constantly feinting, great body puncher, tremendous will to win and killer instinct. Arcel his trainer said Duran was the closest thing he ever saw to Jack Dempsey. At welter his punches had less pop and he was a bit less a physical presence in the ring. I rate him top 2-3 at lt weight and top 10 at welter.
