How do you suppose Manny Pacquiao is going to land with regularity on a 6'1 Hearns? I'm curious. How does that happen? 6'1 Hearns who outboxes Sugar Ray Leonard, who knocks out Junior Middleweights and Middleweights with single shots?
Duran his defence is the most underrated thing about him.
Such a complete fighter.
Duran a G
I don't think any fighter could stand in front of your face like Duran and still make you miss so much.
