I for one do not think he could take Duran. Not at lower weights.
I wanted to ask you why you felt Duran was going to kill him when they fought. He didn' show any fire at all in the Gonzalez fight or in the Minchillo fight and did't own a title. Wilfred at least had a title and was much younger-only 23 years or so.
