Default Re: Whose greater: Mickey Walker or Roberto Duran?

Duran LMW/MW v Walker LHW/HW - Walker clearly has the edge here with the draw with Sharkey and close fight with Loughran, wins over Mctigue, Risko and Uzcaudon. Duran ofcourse has the close fight with Hagler, the wins over Barkley and Moore

Overall clearly Duran

In Walkers favour, he was knocking out legit fighters who were 30lbs heavier than him, a complete monster.
However, Duran climbed up post-montreal, past his prime and had taken Hagler to the last round.
