Why am i not surprised you too have seen it. You lived my era to the hilt boxing wise, great stuff.

Alexis was asked if he could have beaten Duran had they fought, and he replied that he didn't beleive that he could.

Alexis was a fan of Duran and as Duran moved up in weight and challenged heavier champions, you can see him in the first few rows. He seemed to be alone, cheering for Duran. He was at Montreal and I believe he was at the Hagler fight as well. He was the Nicarguan waving the Panamanian flag.

I have pics of him in the crowd at the Hagler fight, not far from Tommy Hearns.

I have an issue of Boxing Illustrated from 1978 with a 'superfight' preview actually mate, so the ball* was definitely in motion. Duran wins KO 13. Slightly ahead on cards.




* It was a meatball, Duran ate it.


Cue: Tumbleweed.

LMFAO!!!! Incidently i agree, bad stylistic match for Alexis. I do know word was Arguello was thinking of stepping up, just thought it didn't quite get that close. Good info you two
