Duran didn't always get up for fights and this could have been one of them.....and that would be a real problem for him against Starling.

Duran would have had to be ready to work non-stop throughout the fight, because he wouldn't beat Starling by hurting and KOing him. Starling was a great defensive fighter, and actually had a pretty potent offense when he opened up- especially with his left hook.

I see Duran outworking Starling for most of the fight while being good enough defensively himself to neutralize Marlon when he did fire back.

Duran by decision.

Duran "killed" pretty much no one at 147, while Starling was never "killed" by anyone.

Starling was an extremely skilled, smart, and tough individual. The furthest thing from an easy mark for the 147lb Duran.

Don't see anyone beating Starling easily at his best, his defense was excellent and is probably the best I've seen at fighting out of the high guard (Nelson ?), he's good enough to be competitive with most.

See the fight going as jabs said, Duran doing most of the work and keeping busy in rounds is what will win him the fight, he's not KO'ing him that's for sure.

I just think that for Duran, we can come up with a greater name.

Sure, but that would be ground that was covered. I assume the reason SCTrojan put Starling in there was because Starling was an overlooked fighter (which you helped prove!) who would have truly tested Duran.
