And Duran later after he retired looks like he got up to 250 or 260, although now it looks like he is down to 180 or so. You could not see a guy like Floyd weighing 250 or 260 like Duran does. Even Hearns now looks like he weighs about 210 or so.
Hagler is like 5'6 max.
Duran was a big lightweight and Hagler a small middleweight.
Duran is on the right after a enjoying the sun for too long.
Probably why these guys were so freaking tough was that they were so stocky.
Same goes for Tua, Tyson too etc. (Barbados Joe Walcott and Sam Langford too)
