Duran is my favorite fighter of all-time but sorry, he was the champion and coming off the greatest performance of his and almost anybody else's lives. There never would've been a good time for a rematch. If they had it in March instead of November, he's still gonna be a fat ass from the same amount of weeks to the day of the fight. Maybe even worse.
He ducked Aaron Pryor
