I'll have to beg to differ here...p4p, Duran's fierceness and perception would be similar to Pacquiao's, both toward Mayweather, and Mayweather would beat both. Before Pacquiao's recent KTFO loss/misfortune, he was generally but arguably percieved as being more durable and fierce than Duran, if not more so.
I believe Mayweather would also defeat both Benitez and Hearns, prime p4p. I won't say that of SRL, tho', and SRL would remain above FMJ in my historical rankings, at least for the foreseable future.
