Default Re: Floyd or Duran - Most skilled?

i think you mean more skilled cause neither is the most skilled

sadly my Duran knowledge is not as good as it should be

but id be willing to say he is a better boxer

going by his close but clear win over Leonard as a prime example

the guy was a wizard in the ring

Floyds great too, this is a tough call cause both men are different styles but experts in their own way

i will say i dont know any examples of Duran neutralizing and dominating guys in the way Floyd has

How not? The only advantage Duran has on Floyd is punching power.
