I reckon around the same as they were both campaigning at middleweight in 1988. Duran becoming the middleweight champ 1989. Obviously Benn was the younger and not blown up like roberto.

Could you imagine Duran in today's 147?

I'd love to see Martinez call him out, scary thing is, Duran would have taken him on.


Duran vs Martinez.


Would it be safe to say if Duran trained and hadn't gassed like he did vs Hagler who is one of the ATG's at MW then...


Duran SD Martinez?

I didn't even comment on the Duran sparring. Duran looked good. Either way Hearns and Duran were sparring these guys and not fighting them. I never said Duran was not great, I said he was not as great as you guys think. Duran is a great fighter. My point is that the top cream of the crop guys who can box and punch gave him more trouble than other guys. I always said a guy like Nigel Benn -Duran would have beaten. There is a style of fighter Duran should have always fought, and there is a style Hearns should have fought. Barkley is a key to that. That is why Ray Leonard comes out ahead of Duran and Hearns, because he could adapt to every style. Although I doubt he would stop Barkley.

He was really fast, SRL 1 was a good fight to show it too, how he was keeping up with SLR for the most part, though SRL was faster in flurries.

Ray was not fighting his fight. Duran had decent handspeed, but Ray had good hand and foot speed, so the rematch when Ray moved he positioned himself much better than Duran could. If someone fights Duran on the inside they could lose. Even Mike Tyson.

Hagler was beating Duran up on the inside and bizarrely, Duran started to get the better of Hagler from a distance.

landing a few right hands is not getting the better of hagler, and those were still more sneaky rights than really rights with any power on them. It isn't like Duran was on his toes moving around. Marvin didn't have a proper gameplan in that fight and still won. Had he started off using his jab he would have busted up Duran and stopped him in 5 or 6 rounds- at the most it would have gone 8.
