A four-man round-robin tournament at 140 between Pryor, Chavez, Pacquiao and Tszyu would be pretty tasty I think.

You think Erik will go one better than Marco? I'm flabbergasted...I really didn't see that prediction coming. Morales doesn't stop Hamed, but he beats him all the same. I think Erik would have came in more cautious than usual too, he was an intelligent fighter at his best, and he was no average Featherweight by any means. Hamed lands his fair share of shots, but his power is overstated. Barrera walked through 2-3 flush left hands and didn't blink.

yeah it would be, there was a post including these 4 fighters awhile ago, its an interesting little group. I think they'd all end up with atleast 1 loss

I'd make a very rough guess and say if any losses occur, Pac loses to Chavez, Pryor loses to Tszyu, Chavez loses to Prior and Tszyu loses to Pac

And Duran from the emiliano Villa fight then beats all of them, of course.

Whilst you've been occupying the General Forum(which is one up), we have already established that a more competative round robin for Duran would be..

Montreal Duran
1967 Ali
1987 Tyson
1995 Lewis

Exactly why I didn't include him. The other four could conceivably lose to one of the others, Duran isn't losing to any of them.

Pacquiao, Pryor and Chavez are legends and a level above anybody that Duran managed to beat, with the exception of Leonard(who avenged his loss by beating him twice and making him quit)

I hope you're just forgetting that Duran, in all those examples, was no longer at his best weight, which is what the fantasy post was pertaining to.

I hope... cause if you're not, then you might need to start wearing a crash helmet at all times.

Tyson/Ali. The prefight hype trash talking between the two. They are both masters of their chosen styles.

Benny Leonard/Pernell Whitaker. Miroor images of each other. Master boxers underated punchers. Great defense from both. They are my #1 and #2 on my p4p list so of course this would make my fanasty fight top three. The only real diffrence is Whitaker is Black and a southpaw while Leonard is Jewish and not a southpaw.

Sugar Ray Leonard/Floyd Mayweather Jr. While this might not the most exciting fight. Also while they have difrent styles they both seem to know how to win.
