    Duran beat Leonard at 147 and DLH cannot match that win, he also beat Palomino far more convincingly than DLH would have, he would land far more right hands on DLH than Oscar could land on him, his defensive skill would render DLH one-handed.

    Duran jabbed well v Leonard in their first bout and was a far more skilled fighter than Quartey with better head movement.

    I know that, but Quarteys jab was arguably the best jab of the 90’s, better than a Duran Jab, an I’m on about Oscar struggling with it because it was such a weapon.

    Yeah, that’s why one of the best looking boxers was Mexican American (ODLH), and one of the best looking boxers today is also Mexican American (RG), and another one of the best looking boxers today is Mexican (Canelo). Also, even Mexican criminals are good looking (Richard Ramirez adored by women), and Chapos sons are good looking guys too! Don’t tell me that Duran is better looking than those cats? Lmao

    I always thought of Duran as sort of a slower Sugar Shane and Leonard as kind of a PBF for his times and Oscar had PBF's own daddy sayin' by the points Oscar shoulda won and well, Shane is nex-gen Sugar. Anyway, my 2 c, pease.
