Duran beats anyone, anytime, anyplace at LW.

Pac would be KO'd by round 6.

Not even an arguement, really.

I like Duran at both weights, by either UD or late TKO.

It boils down to Pacquaio's defense isn't good enough to trade with Duran, Duran times and lands on Pacquaio at will and see's allot of Pacquaio's punches coming

I read this tidbit somewhere though:

RM: The two boxing greats who Manny’s been compared to as of late, due to his success in moving up multiple weight classes are Roberto Duran and Pernell Whitaker. How do you think Manny would match up with them at 135?

FR:
It’s tough to compare eras, of course. Pernell was a great boxer, and Manny has trouble with the counter-punching style a little bit, but I don’t think Pernell could stand the pressure. With Duran, I think Manny could beat him. Duran was a ballsy guy; he liked to fight, but, you know, “No Más” made me wonder if he had any quit in him. In the past, at [lightweight], I picked Duran to win, but this time I think Manny would win by decision now.

The main problem I see for Pac's sake, is that he still has a tendency to be too open when attacking, sometimes off balance, and someone with Duran's skill and savvy will punish such flaws severly.

It's odd. He's on two interviews though, and there about a year old, picking Duran point blank.

Who knows. I don't place much credence in trainers doubling as historians or p4p analysts but it was interesting that he would go with Duran.
