Default Re: Why do ppl always say Duran moved up 2 weightclasses to beat Leonard?

On that basis you must consider Duran prime and peak for Dejesus 1?

**** poor gameplan wasn't it, boxing and moving was clearly the foil to get the win over Duran, I suppose Dundee thought Leonard was the bigger stronger guy, wrong wasn't he?
I think there is a difference between a guy with 20 something fights and a couple dozen amateur bouts and someone with a similar number of fights and 150 amateur bouts. More to the point Duran wasn't quite at his peak; he was indisputably in his prime.
