size is what it brings you in a boxing match

size is what it affords you

duran did not have a huge frame even at LW. it was big, but he's not ali funeka.

he did have what his size afforded him, though. a great chin and a great punch.


the man had zero business fighting at MW. zero. he didnt grow into the division. he basically ate his way there. it was a great chin and cuteness that allowed him to compete with such larger men. he also carried enough punch to get a man's attention. he wobbled iran barkley, one of the biggest MW, and he even got the respect of marvin hagler, a career MW with an iron chin.


he would have certainly had the ability to become a legitimate welterweight given his size.

when he was a LW and smashing everybody he was young.


tape dont lie, either
he was 5'7"ish with a 66 inch reach according to the boxrec. i thought he looked longer than that from his LW footage, but the tape generally doesnt lie. sometimes people fudge with the numbers.
