Default Re: Duran-Hearns

I think Hearns would do that to Duran majority of the time. Duran has a style to give Hearns problems when he gets in tight but its getting in tight without getting nailed on the way in thats the problem, yes Duran slipped punches and moved his head when inside but he did not have the perpetual headmovement whilst moving foward he would of needed to close the distance on Hearns without getting hit, plus Duran was not great at cutting the ring off imo, and i believe came in straight a lot of the time.

Leonard had one of the best double jab right hands in the business, plus he was 5 ft 10 and a quicker than Duran.
