He beat a past his best Duran, well best his best weight class. A good victory more because of the fashion it was done than anything. Duran was a solid fighter but he wasnt' a great fighter by then. A solid victory but nothing more.
Even at 154 Duran looked like a roly poly doll. a long way from the mid 70s version. check out his fight with Leo Ortiz. that is prime Duran
