I think he was the meanest and baddest man on the planet until Tyson went mental and started chewing on ears.

But other than that I suppose it has no significance

Did Duran hit you with a mango when you were a child?

I think he retired (1x) in '82, would that be a "Prime" Leonard?
[it's not quitting, but he did walk away, leaving some big fight's on the table]

Liston and tyson were not in there primes when they quit.
Duran was 14 years into his career so how can Duran be in his prime. How do you know? They say Leonard's prime was 1979-1982 then balk at the Norris fight so who's to really know.

That eye was an excuse he used when he didnt want to fight someone. The moment sees a bum wearing a championship belt his eye is no longer a problem. He wants those five titles!

In that case why do you continually shove down our throats the Norris win over an ancient SRL??

Every more embarrassing is that Duran was only 12 years into his pro career
