NAW...... If Duran was willing to fight "Leonard and Hagler" prior to Hearns, than I just cannot see Duran being scared shitless going in against "The Hitman."
I'm telling you, Duran lost plenty of weight leading up to make 154 pounds for Hearns..... Duran looked wobbly legged and ill coming into the ring.... Like Gil Clancy said following the massacre: "Duran didn't have it from the opening bell."
