    I mean his skin is pretty low in melanin, so I'm pretty sure that makes him white.
    Did they not teach you biology in your backwater school?

    Lol Duran is regularly referred to as 'Cholo' and has been for his entire life. He is most certainly not 'white'.

    I'd advise not talking race on here. It can easily get you banned.

    Listen I think you're forgetting my point is that it's a travesty that Jack Johnson isn't on this on this list. Same thing that happened to him happened to Sonny Liston, wether you agree that it's a bias against race by the press or not, I think it's very clear that these brash outspoken personalities who just happen to be black, seem to have a bias against them when it comes to how the boxing community views them.
    I would even argue to a lesser descent, that the same thing happens to FMJ, but that's subjective.

    On a side note, not that I give a toss, Hispanics are a mix of white Europeans, and people native to the Americas, I mean white in the most literal of terms, because that's the colour of his skin. The reason it's relevant is that there hasn't been anywhere the same amount of historical stigma in the boxing industry against hispanic or, any other nationality, creed, religion,or skin colour than when it comes to people of African extent.
    Don't believe me pick up a newspaper from the 20s

    I mean I've never heard that but if I had to guess basee on how the guy acted if someone called him that they were probably using this definition of the word
    INFORMAL•US
    a young man belonging to a Mexican-American urban subculture associated with street gangs.
    Seeing as racism on tv or the newspaper even in the 80s was seen as a nono

    No, Cholo as in mixed blood. Usually Indian, Mexican or indigenous. Duran's father was Mexican, and Duran had Indian features.

    Lol nice try with the 'muh racism' bait. Duran states it himself in his autobiography 'I am Duran'. He received the nickname Cholo in his youth from his young peers, his Mother and Mothers friends. It is used affectionately.

    You sir are part of the problem. Primo was a bum who regularly got whooped by dudes half his size, and had suspect wins. FMJ beat numerous champions, futurechampions, and, past champions.
    Im not saying he's anything close to GOAT status, but what you're saying is delusional and biased.

    An affectionate nickname is the same as the abuse Jack Johnson and Sonny Liston were subjected to?
    Is that what you're saying?

    But the sentiment is still there and you know it.
    I assume that's some kind of inside joke?
