8-7 Duran

I thought it was an extremely close fight, with Leonard taking the last four rounds. Round 13 was an incredible round, and very close - and I could see some people giving it to Duran, but I gave it Leonard. They both scored with great shots. Duran got an early lead, and he hung on to victory by a point. Bit to late for Leonard to rally at the end. I know most people thought Duran won the fight clearly.

If you can tell me which rounds you disagree on, I'll go back and review them and see if I can make a case otherwise. Some round were hard to score I thought.
Duran certainly won his rounds more impressively than Leonard. He was the one who continually landed the heavier blows, and I also thought that Duran's defense was noticeably better throughout the fight.

If the fight was scored as one entire round, Duran wins by a distance.
