Duran beat SRL for the title in his next fight 4 months later.

(Great when we had all the good fights on home TV, ...ABC WW of Sports, CBS Sports Spectacular & NBS Sportsworld).

Duran ships pretty big punches here without losing stride. Hard man to go blow-for-blow with, even at welterweight.

Duran was one of the greatest of the 70's on and I have seen them all. He was not always at his best but when he was he was a hard man to beat and one of the most intimidating for opponents

I didn't remember Duran looking too good in this one (or in many of his Welterweight fights pre-Leonard; probably why the commentators mentioned something about Duran trying to silence the critics who'd been saying as much). The re-watch proved my memory to be pretty sound. Hell of a finishing combo, though.
