Duran beat a prime Leonard no question. But he quit in the rematch and Tommy Hearns knocked him out cold in two rounds. Cold ****ed him and he was out before he hit the floor.

Duran's offense = Mayweathers defense and the opposite is roughly true.

It has zero relevance as to the original question and doesnt factor any of Duran's incredible reign at LW in.

It has everything to do with it. If you have skills you shouldnt be quiting in fights or getting put to sleep. Duran is great. Watched him a ton growing up. People think Floyds just this defensive fighter but nobody talks about his accuracy. Hes number 1 in accuracy in the history of compubox. Doesnt that count too?

Floyd is a remarkably effective defensive counter puncher whose offence is also excellent. So they both equal out in a way.

Floyd better defense, but focuses on his defense more. Duran better offence but focuses on offence more and has greater power. They were/are both pure counter punchers though.

It's hard to say though. Duran applied his skills to much greater fighters, but also had huge discipline issues. Floyd hasn't fought nearly as good opposition but has shown to be much more consistent in training than Duran.

I'd lean on Duran because he applied it aganinst much better fighters.

Always enjoy watching you guys post.

Mayweather is more skilled but Duran was no slouch either
You can't just say Duran and point to his fight with Leonard without looking at his rematch and the Hearns and Hagler fight
Leonard ****ed up the first fight by fighting Durans fight
Duran had ****ing balls of steel and deserves credit for that but he was not as skilled as Mayweather
