Duran at least whipped Sugar Ray at the end of those 14 years.
Incorrect - their only fight 14 years or more from Durans debut was super Sugar's near shutout win

Let's not forget he was two weight classes above his own division and still beat your "prime Sugar Ray"
Call it prime but the fact is Leonard improved post Duran and may have even been still improving post Hearns. SRL moved up 2 divisions and still beat the title wielding Hagler
