Default Napoles vs. Duran and Whitaker

1. Vs. Duran at 135 and Montreal Duran vs. Welter Napoles

2. Whitaker at 140 and Welter vs Welter

This came from another thread where it was claimed Duran was scared to face Napoles and Napoles would beat Whitaker.

I can't in good conscience pick Napoles on the limited stuff I have seen of him under welter...but I reckon you could argue him over both with a bit of extrapolation of his welter work.

He has the tools to upset both...but it's one of the those calls where you can't really be right or wrong, to close.

Either one could beat the other on any given night. Chuck Carlos Ortiz in and I'd say he'd pick up wins against all of them if they all had a series with each other.

They are all ****ing excellent.

1969 Napoles beats 1980 Duran IMO. Like I've said before, Napoles is DeJesus squared.

But Duran didn't lose to DeJesus in 1980.

I favour Whitaker to beat Napoles, Napoles-duran is a 50-50, I think Napoles does better down the stretch than Duran and edges out a decision at 147

Napoles vs. Duran is about as even a match as you could ask for. Montreal Duran would be a bit more wary of Napoles power I think. Unless Duran cuts him, this one will always come down to the judges.

I can't see Whitaker prevailing over Napoles at any weight. Defensive abilities are comparable, but offense is a no-brainer. That's all Napoles.
