Duran-Barkley is tremendous, Southpaw. I'd have no hesitation in calling it a great fight. An all-time great fight.

It's certainly great from the view point of Duran putting on a boxing clinic.

Like I said, the only thing Duran had over Barkley was boxing skills, nothing else. He was smaller, older, shorter, perhaps even slower, didn't punch as hard, and yet he found a way to win.

Opinions will vary. For me, Duran-Barkley had everything. Action, drama, momentum shifts. It's among my top 5 fights of all time.

Mcallum Curry could work too.
