James Toney that showed up in half his title defences.

He would have to be a hot favourite over Al McCoy.

The guy would have to have lead feet and slow hands for Duran to take him. Roberto was amazing, but he was extremely lucky to have that kind of fighter in Iran Barkley in front of him. Iran was the ideal kind of fighter for a guy to have that last hurrah against.

I thought Toney lost in his fight to Tiberi when I saw it back in 1990.

Harry Greb

Actually in all seriousness I would think could beat alot of Middleweight champions obviously not Greb, Hagler, Robinson, Monzon, Tiger or Hopkins but someone like Fitzsimmons or Giardello he would have a fair chance of IMO even Olssen.

I think you vastly underestimate Giardello.

Duran needs flatfooted fighters here to be made favourite, or someone that will just come straight at him.

Yep, I see Giardello's workmanlike style winning a decision over Duran. He will just throw too many punches and was fairly fast.

Yeh Giardello does not sound right there, upon thinking more Giardello could out move him. Someone like Olssen would be perfect IMO.
