Zale wins, Roberto hangs tough for 9-10 rds than Tony takes over might win by TKO late

Zale would have torn Duran's body up in winning a gruelling 15 round decision. Duran may have been a better p4p fighter than Zale but the Man od Steel was a much better middleweight....especially before he went into the service in WW2.

Zale, too big and proven against other fighters bigger than Duran too.

Remember we are not talking P4P...Today ESB posters underestimates how tough and powerful the "man of steel " was prior to serving 4 years in the Navy...Duran was NOT a GREAT MW. As Tommy Hearns proved,and a natural MW as Zale was would be too strong a body puncher for a truly great lightweight Roberto Duran...
Thinking of it like that i would have to change my opinion and agree with you....

You know as much about Boxing as you do about being Human. Durans prime was as a Lwt. although he did fight at Middle with some degree of success. Zale of course was a natural Middle and would destroy a bloated, past prime Duran.

I'm guessing those who are picking Duran are the same ones who say he lost to Leonard, Benitez, Hagler and Hearns because the fights were not at his "natural weight".
