Bottom line..Durans power was underrated once he left the LW division

Were you the guy who use to park his T-Rex on the grass? Memories are hazy...

And of course I was joking. Although on an unrelated note please tell me you never ordered the house brew.

I don't think Duran was that little. If you see him with Hagler in 1983, he is not this little lightweight with a big middleweight. I remember reading that Hagler and Duran did a soft drink commercial in 1982 or 1983, and someone noticed how they were not too different in size, which is how it came about that Duran could maybe fight Hagler. And Duran later after he retired looks like he got up to 250 or 260, although now it looks like he is down to 180 or so. You could not see a guy like Floyd weighing 250 or 260 like Duran does. Even Hearns now looks like he weighs about 210 or so.

They were both 5"8..Haglar was just naturally a bigger man.
