Anyone care to address the 800-lb gorrilla in the corner of the ring? Is there a decade he might share with two others, or will his existence remain swept under the rug?

Duran was voted the fighter of the decade for the 70's and was pretty well aove the others in terms of wins and dominance etc. 80's was too inconsistent as his peak was through the 70s and ended at the start of the 80's.

I understand you think you know the history of the day but your referencing the feelings now! After Johnson business was conducted differently and the fighters "feelings" were NOT part of the equation!
Dempseys best was before he got the gold but my point was he was THE most popular athlete of his time and theres NO disputing that!!
Ray

Your point, the same point is made regarding Sullivan. Sullivan was to many the first superstar along with the Babe.
