Just an interesting set of stats:

Ray Leonard won 36 fights between 1977 and 1989.

Roberto Duran won 103 fights between 1968 and 2000!!!!


Duran certainly showed more longevity!

And remember that Duran was a pro for 8 years before Ray even won the Olympic gold and he still beat him in their first match which is impressive.

If Roberto was born ten years later and was a natural welterweight rather than lightweight I'd fancy that the fights with Hagler, Leonard and Hearns may have gone differently in the 80s....

ray leonard is far superior....he actually showed up in all his big fights regardless of whatever shape he was in unlike duran who got his ass starched pressed and cleaned by tommy hearns....it looked like he died in midair when hearns hit him....whats hilarious is duran gets heaps of praise for beating barkley but got beat by leonard in his next fight...but duran fanboys dismiss it as boring...leonard>duran all day....

Not counting the last two fights, which were disastrous, Leonard basically fought over 12 years, during which he had breaks of 3 years, 2 years 3 months and 19 months.

Duran had three times as many fights over 5 decades.




Without the eye and hand problems, Leonard probably would have outdone Duran. But it is what it is.
