Depends what type of Skill you are on about, floyd has better pure boxing skills, has more defensive skill going backwards, but Duran has better aggressive skills, Duran has better skill slipping punches when coming foward in an aggressive manner

Floyd... for me...he has shown he can fight in EVERY way and win doing so.....Duran will always rate as a higher ATG we get that...yes Duran has fought Hagler,Hearns, and SRL....GREAT.....but he is not more skilled than Floyd and he is not on some crazy ass other tier than Floyd in terms of skill....and because he fought other ATG' doesnt make him more skilled either

People say Floyd is overrated...maybe...but Duran gets crazy exaggerated around here.

Lebron James is more skilled than Jordan...doesnt make him better than MJ.

In Floyd's career name something that you have not seen him do in terms of boxing and not do it succesfuly in the ring winning. He has displayed every faucet of the fight game and has done so succesfuly in the ring.

Can you say that for Duran?

(Now this is razor close...so i acknowledge it could be nit picking really, as to me these two are two of the most skilled to ever grace the sport....there really isnt much difference in skill to me but you can differentiate the two slightly)

If the sport was based solely on defense than Floyd gets the nod ,but since you need both offense and defense I have to go with the hands of stone !

Ironically, if you were to start a new one with a new poll (without an expiration date), the responses would probably come flying in.
