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

To me DeJesus skills seemed to be more or less on the level of Benitez'. That he couldn't attain the same level of greatness might just be because Roberto was in his way.

In their rematch I do think DeJesus showed the superior boxing skills - but that Duran's superiorty in strength, power and stamina just got to be too much for him. Against Benitez at 154 he lacked that physical superiorty.

In the rubber against DeJesus, however, I remember it as Duran being just superior overall, though.
