Everyone else, Floyd should be a favorite or slight favorite. Duran is a toss up. But I can see him winning both fights (or losing both).
I think Hearns beats Floyd, but I think that version of Duran loses to an 07/08 WW Floyd...Floyd wouldn't have made the mistakes against Duran that Leonard did in their first fight, it is just a different mentality. It would look like Duran-Leonard II in both fights. Would Duran make a match of it, of course. Would Floyd lose? Probably not, he is so good at scoring points.
