You could have just as easily given the decision to Barkley mate. Really, really close fight that Duran would have lost without the knock down.
Absolutely, and like Hearn's is possibly the biggest ww of all time, i can't think of a bigger man than Barkley at 160, so they were a great match really..
Shame there was'nt a rubber match, could've made Barkley an atg..

Man, I'll say. He ended up at heavyweight stopping Gerrie Coetzee, WBC heavyweight champ, so he was a big dude.

Just seeing how he dwarfed Duran was incredible. Looked like he was going to annihilated.

Barkley against Duran is one of my favourite fights. Early on it really didn't look like Duran could do it. This would be like floyd or pac moving up to middleweight and beating GGG.

Hearns was legendary power puncher.
bu he was the khan of his day as far as chin goes.

could dish it out but wasnt enough of a man to take it back...

A little history on Barkley: South Bronx raised, leader of biggest street gang in the area...the one person considered meaner and tougher was his big sister...Not making this up!

Very tough hombre. Some guys come up "tough" and it may not translate when they become fighters against other tough individuals, but Ian took that toughness and craziness and translated it into a usable force in the ring. Sometimes the tougher guy beats the more technical guy.

Duran beat him but it was a close fight. Barkley showed skills that people didn't know he had and Duran took some hellacious shots. Gil Clancey who was providing color was in awe of what Duran was doing that night.

I wish all the present fighters were even just half the man Hearns was. Hearns was a warrior that fought on too long.
