Default Re: Hagler - Baddest Mofo of our Era

I will take roberto duran as the baddest of our era....
A 5ft 7 inch guy with a 67 inch reach fighting and competing with hagler,hearns,barkley,leonard and others at divisions much higher than his natural weight and kicking ass and hanging tough with them....Can you imagine any lightweight champ in history beating leonard,going 15 close rounds with marv at MIDDLE,and beating a huge MIDDLE/LT HEAVY for a middle title in barkley? Also not forgetting whipping davey moore and cuevas at lt middle,and palmino at welter.....
Just look at his fight with barkley and see the size disparity,basically a welter in with a lt heavy,and see roberto brawl with barkley and take barkleys head and body shots while dishing out tremendous punches himself....Duran at his best was probably the most intense and savage fighter i have ever seen.....
I loved his reply when he was asked about how he would fare in a street fight with ali or foreman....? Reply; 'I kick the **** out of him'....
