It just wouldnt have been that competitive. Duran wouldve knocked him out no matter how many times they fought.

Ray Leonard running around the ring in New Orleans wasnt all that impressive but even giving him credit for that so so performance all it proved was that he was a better Welterweight than Duran. Thats it.

He probably was. There was one bout Duran mentioned (he did not name the opponent) that when he was fighting, he broke both of his hands. So, he knocked the guy out with his elbow.
