Zero. Pretty confident in saying that. The size disparity is way too much and Duran lost plenty of his physical gifts above 147.

If they were naturally the same size, it'd be a beatdown for Duran. He was just a much better fighter than Ward.

Naturally the size disperity would have to be taken int account, so Ward wins. If they were equal in size and weight, then Duran wins it

No, but he's a great fighter in his own right and naturally larger than Hagler. Factor in his quick hands, athleticism, reflexes, physical strength, and tactical mindset and you'd have a fight he dominates. Duran was a solid, but limited fighter at 160 pounds. Fighting at 168 against one of the very best in the division's (short) history would be a bad idea for Duran.

Ward is a complete fighter who can fight on the outside and in, while Durans best weight was 135. I could see Duran giving a fighter like Kessler hell and might be able to pull it out but Ward is another story.

haha.. Duran loses EVERY round against Ward.. too much size, and Ward is very good as well.. whoever thinks Duran beats him, I would like to hear how.

The only relevant polls are public.
