But, bro think about it. Did they fought them in there first fight at WW?
How many fights at WW did Duran and Mosley before fighting Leonard and Oscar?
So how is that the same?
And, not for nothing but Duran and Mosley had a long resume at LW. They were career LW's. JMM was not, was a career FW. Granted Leonard was a career WW, Floyd was not. But, Oscar really wasn't either.
