Bodybuild, though it's not something I've been too terribly dedicated about the last couple years. Like to smoke and drink a little too much, don't always separate my meals adequately plus I have two little ones running around that need attention.

Nice...same here. Did you compete before or has it been a purely a personal endeavor?

Yeah, I imagine it'd be tough prepping and finding time for every meal with two kids to look after. No doubt they'd be the priority over getting each meal in on-time, and rightfully so. I've been bodybuilding a bit myself for the past few years. Nothing competitive, but I let myself go a bit too much bulking the past few months, so I'm cutting right now. Worst ****ing time to be doing this with the holidays coming up.

If you go thru the rest, you'll see that he doesn't have Michael Spinks in his top 100.

Cool? Good? Okay, let's move on.


It absolutely amazing me how few so called boxing fans do this. It's not rocket science. Presumably we're all boxing fans and presumably we have access to both fighters fights. The evidence is there for all to see.

idk much about Duran, I know what he did but didn't see him fight but they both have good defensive skills the difference is that Durans offence was probably way better. Also Durans skills were enough to see him go up to middleweight and draw with the champion there and fight the other 3 of the fab 4 out of Durans ideal weight

Prime Duran would beat the panties off Mayweather.
