Greater Fighter through resume, accomplishments, skills, and longevity easily Duran.
More skilled has to be Floyd. This is not a knock on Duran. Some of you keep harping on the fact that Floyd hasn't showed skill against the best. Wrong he has fought champion after champion top fighter after top fighter.

Todays fighters are penalized for not having Durans,Hearns,SRL's, and Haglers.....these types of fighters are just not going to come around ever again especially with the way boxing is set-up now.

Floyd has demonstrated EVERY faucet of the boxing game and has won while doing so. Name me ONE thing that Floyd has not shown us. His versatility is under rated i believe on here severely.

No one is saying your beloved ATG's are any less great or Floyd could beat....but in this comparison skill wise solely...Floyd takes the cake....even if it’s a slim margin....that’s certainly not a discredit to Duran and his accomplishments. Duran is what he is because he was that damn good at what he did do that does not make him more skilled.

I honestly don't get how people can see them both fight at their peaks and not notice how much more skilled Duran was. It's weird to me. I mean, I get that some people haven't really bothered to watch Duran fight and are just going based on reputations, or that they're new to boxing, or don't really know much about the specifics of it, but...I don't know. It's right there, on film. Duran was more skilled.

In fact, you could put any other boxer's name up there, and I think I'd still say, "Duran was more skilled." It's all right there for everyone to see.




Some of the posts in here, man...If I were a dick trying to be funny I might say that they represent exactly why the General Forum can't have nice things. That's only if I were a dick trying to be funny though.

No, he's faced a load of straight on basic guys.

He's versatile against basic operators.

I'd say Duran had the better defence as well.

I was mulling over taking it there. It's certainly more impressive to me considering the manner in which Duran fought -- to remain that difficult to hit -- while simultaneously utilizing a far superior offensive arsenal than what Floyd brings to the table.

Floyd is more skilled how?

floyd is more skilled against nobodies, or close to being nobodies, and aging stars.

good salesman though, but not quite on par with an ali.

if you really look into it, floyd is just average compared to atg's of the past.

he just happens to be the guy who was able to exploit more the present world: more haters than fans.

Floyd more skilled and Duran more confident and loved boxing more than Floyd does. Much of Duran's success is his love for boxing.
