Re: Why do ppl always say Duran moved up 2 weightclasses to beat Leonard?
not to compare Duran to Cotto, but for the sake of argument on fighting top guys and excuses. Cotto did beat Shane, but the other top guys he fought which were not favorable to him were Margarito,Mayweather and Pacman. He lost to those top guys. If he were Duran people would give him an excuse for those losses and say how great he was to beat Shane. It is convienient for the fighter who gets the excuses, but diminishes the guys who beat him and trained and put it hard work. And Cotto would have had the excuses last night he was way up in weight last night that is why Trout won. It is all for Duran's benefit, not like the legends of the other guys matter.
