Duran trained to make weight limits, not train for a specific fighter after his first Leonard fight! Thats when Arcel & Brown said enough is enough, you folks need to realize that Duran training himself compared to his original team telling him what to do leads to two very different fighters, and out comes. Great trainers don't "play" with "pick up the cash at any cost" fighters. Duran could fight at 145 to 49 because thats what he hydrated to after making 135. In his early days he only went up to 141 but as you get older thats not healthy and you need to rehydrate even more with age. He had some good wins at 47 and above but being KO'ed by Hearns and losses to Camacho (are you kidding me) pretty much tells the story why he was a terrific LW and a decent average competitor above that. Without his "name" as a LW he wouldn't have done squat as a WW and a MdW is is just ridiculous. Ray
