Default Re: Duran vs Napoles

I don't think Napoles is Dejesus squared per se, there's six and half a dozen between them in most respects as boxer-punchers, but the fact that Napoles was a fair bit bigger and thus a more dangerous opponent physically mean it could turn out that way in reality, with the obvious expection that Duran did handle the weight jump when given time.

However a jump straight up to 147 in the early 70s without getting used to things there could well result in that sort of scenario and defeat for Duran.
