Barkley was no world beater. He was a big tough middleweight. B class fighter who just happened to have Tommy's number. He was an exciting fighter though and to me that is what counts.
It was still a pretty big achievement for Duran though due to the sheer size difference. Floyd has beaten tons of guys with more talent, but never faced anyone that size. It is an odd comparison to be honest with you.
