Default What could Leonard done to win his fight with Duran? Fought his fight instead?

For most of the fight he was makin it easy For Duran by staying close and flat footed, it should have been a bouncing moving jabbing fast combinations eonard against Duran..So what could leonard have done to win this fight like he was supposed to?

Some myths will never properly be debunked. Of course, this is one of the many very coy troll threads we've been inundated with for weeks in classic now. But, whatever.

It may sound crazy but I believe Dino, OMGWTF, TheSouthpaw, KuRuPT, VG_Addict, and some others are not new to ESB but have newer accounts so that they can rehash old arguments, troll for or against certain fighters and post seemingly innocent threads that they know are dredged-up, long-time arguments here, for the sake of humouring themselves. CALL ME CRAZY. Call me paranoid. Call me even one noid. But that's what I'm thinking. There's been quite a growth spurt in these accounts chiming in on classic and now they're really starting to make up a decent percentage of the discussion I've been seeing. But, I wish them well.

For most of his career he fought Durans fight, though he was stiffer than usual.

Anyway at 145 he was physically superior to Duran in every way, he just got outskilled too much.

Don't know if he could have done anything. He should have tried to be more mobile early on, though, giving more angles - like he usually did. He was more static and way more stiffer in the opening rounds than he usually was. Duran had something do with that, of course. So it's hard to say.

He didn't look like his usual self, but then he'd never faced someone like Duran before.

I'm starting to get the feeling about the new accounts as well, something is just not quite right about them

Leonard 'not fighting his fight' is a bit like saying you were late for an interview because you had no sleep and had a bad morning. Well, you should have gone to bed earlier and not blamed the early appointment time

It's hard to believe that Leonard only fought 40 times in that era. Incredible.
