Re: Why do ppl always say Duran moved up 2 weightclasses to beat Leonard?
Nah, he didn't ever resemble Duran of the past even against the mediocre guys he was fighting, much less 'the greats'. Not against Moore or Barkley, either. It was much more to do with his own erosion than any step up in opposition. You keep mentioning his age, yet he had more fights than any of those guys would go on to over the entirety of their careers before he even fought Leonard the first time.
