Default Fighters like Duran?

Is there any recent fighter out there with a similar style to Manos de Piedra? I'd love to know.

Good poster. - ddangerous Nice looking pup.  Have anyother Pepsi - ABOSWORTH 
Smile

Probably loads but none who were as successful.

On a side note I remember when the Ruelas brothers were coming up & their promoter said Gabe would be like Duran & Rafael would be like Arguello.

They both did ok but fell a long way short of those lofty targets.

I have heard of those guys. I also read an article in a boxing magazine calling edwin rosario as the duran of the 80s. Funny duran was still fighting in the eighties just against bigger men and usally in poor condition than the roberto of the 70's.

Not recently, but Julio Cesar Chavez, Sr. is the fighter that comes closest to being like Duran. And to some degree, pre-Hearns Pipino, as he was never the same after.

Although some might give a guffaw, I'd actually say James Toney is the closest. A lot of similar stuff, but Toney was focused more on waiting for counter opportunities whereas Duran created counter opportunities. A lot of similarities to me.
