I like Duran alot and think quite highly of him (although top 3 seems a bit faefetched to me SRR-Greb-Armstrong seem like locks to me)...BUT, I am not familiar with this list of boxers, lets go w/ very good/border line greats, whom Duran brutally kayo'd? Who did he brutaly KO that shows, this as a likely scenerio?
