Again, I don't think people have enough understanding to know how impressive to beat Ernesto Marcel(who was good fighter) at super featherweight in 1970(not a typo 130 in 1970) and then beat Jorge Castro(big strong tough fighter) at Super Middleweight in 1997(not a typo 168 in 1997).
That is a span of 27 of years where he beat 2 top good fighters that were 7 weight-classes apart man.
27 years 7 weight-classes apart this man beat top contenders damn good fighters.
And, between that time period he dominated and cleaned out a division, becoming easily a top 3 greatest LW of all time. Top 3, arguably the goat at 145. Arguably the GOAT at 135. I have him #1 at 135...The only 2 who have a case is B. Loenard and Gans to be ranked ahead of Duran at 135.
Then had success at WW and at MW.
And, this man started his career at the age of 16 or 17 around the bantamweight limit.
Just think about that for a second to realize how crazy that is.
