Talking fighter of the decade, I'd still go Duran as he also beat Marcel and Palomino outside of his LW work.
I respect you.
but let's be real.Palomino was coming off a loss to Benitez.. Duran basically took advantage of a still shell shocked Palomino and still barely manage to win.
Eleta? I'm looking at boxrec right now .. and for the life of me I can't find the name Eleta under Duran's resume?
