don't understimate Duran. He was a skilled guy. He wasn't just some brawler

LW Duran, and WW Floyd. At lightweight Duran was much more than a bully, he had great defense, great speed, aggression and elite offense. He used his tools to perfection. As he went up he became ore and more offensive. Mayweather as he got older started perfecting his style of philly shell, and can stand toe to toe with anyone and manage not to take damage.

What a myth Duran has been built up to be!

He quit against Sugar, brutally K.O'd by Hearns, Cheated against Buchanan and Moore, etc..

No defense, shit chin, quitter!

I have seen numerous Duran fights. Probably more than most on this forum. I can't see how one can watch him and watch Mayweather and say Duran is more skilled. Without being sarcastic or bias.

You are regurgitating what Duran haters say, your comments suggest you have little knowledge of his career and you haven't seen any of his fights. That or you're a Floyd nuthugger. I don't get people like you...

I hope, I just do get how some people hate fighters, I can watch almost anyone and genuinely enjoy their styles, Floyd and Duran are 2 very skilled boxers, and each are skilled in their own way.

He accomplished a considerable amount more with less physical advantages, and competed evenly with fighters greater than Floyd has ever beaten while past his prime and facing size discrepancies Floyd will never face. How? Craft. Skill. There is a difference between looking good stylistically, and demonstrating quality skill. Floyd is very skilled, but Duran has demonstrated more.
