Default Duran's defense

Watching some Duran videos today and the man can slip punches like a monster.

What are you thoughts on his defense?

He's probably the best defensive pressure fighter ever.

I agree with the "best defense ever for a pressure fighter" statement. Even when he was relentlessly attacking opponents, he kept his head moving. Great defense in close as well. Had he not had great defense, he wouldn't have been able to be as successful vs. the 154 and 160 pounders he fought. It's a thing of beauty to watch Duran operate.

Yeah, he was subtle at all with it. Anyone could appreciate how good the man was on defense.

You could see his head roll with the punch. I just seemed so lucid. Hit it and it would sway with the punch and then straighten back up unfazed.

Duran and Tyson are the best best defensive pressure fighter ever.

Agreed, he rolled with punches as well as anyone i have seen. He was seldom caught flush, tho sometimes it may not look that way.

Harry Greb could compete with Duran for "best defensive pressure fighter" too.

Eder Jofre is also up there for best defensive pressure fighter.
