Yes, I've always been a fan of Floyd. Yes, I think a prime Floyd vs. a prime Duran would present some very interesting contrasts in style, talents and demeanors.

But, make no mistake... It should be a compliment for Floyd to be compared to Duran, not the other way around.

Duran was past his prime when he physically and mentally beat down a bigger, younger all-time great in Sugar Ray Leonard. He was WAY past his prime and WAY above his natural weight when he was winning belts at middleweight and taking arguably the greatest champion the weight class has ever seen right down to the wire.

Duran.

Im not talking about their legacy, what they accomplished or all time ranking though. I was just talking about a fantasy fight between the 2 anywhere between 130lbs to 147lbs. I would pick Floyd to win agaisnt Duran as the only real advantage Duran would have is punching power.

Amir Khan knocks out thug who tried to his steal Range Rover

An armed gang fled empty handed after picking on boxers Amir and Haroon Khan and trying to steal Amir's Range Rover.

By Rosa Silverman

8:18AM BST 09 Oct 2012


An armed gang picked the wrong victim when they tried to steal a 100,000 Range Rover belonging to the boxer Amir Khan.

The former world champion and his brother Haroon, who is also a boxer, were set upon in the early hours of yesterday as they returned to the vehicle following a night out.

A gang of at least six men used a 4x4 car to try and block the brothers’ path but the Khans reportedly fought back and their assailants eventually fled from the scene in Birmingham.

A witness to the incident told The Sun newspaper: “One (of the men) slapped Amir and clipped him on the lip but Amir pulled back and knocked him out cold.

“Then five of them went for Amir and Haroon but they stood their ground and these guys got dropped one by one.”

All the Khan brothers were doing was defending their property, the witness said.
They had travelled to Birmingham from Bolton, their home town, for a gig.
Police confirmed they had been called out following reports of a fight but said nobody had come forward.
Amir Khan has his sights set on winning back his world light-welterweight title but has also promised to guide his younger brother to a world title.
He told Telegraph Sport last week: “I think Haroon will be a world champion – we’ll definitely keep it in the family.”
Haroon’s professional debut will be in Manchester in January.



good thing those thugs weren't carrying guns

Boxing is about far more than just lining up very basic measurables and making sweeping conclusions based on them. Sugar Ray Leonard had the same kind of "physical advantages" over Duran aside from punching power and he handled SRL in a way that no other fighter did during Leonard's prime years.

Why? The reason is, despite very sweeping generalizations based on the way he chose to fight, Duran had great handspeed and accuracy to go along with his "hands of stone." Also, he was fundamentally sound a lot of the time despite his brawling nature. He wasn't like a Manny Pacquiao who constantly leaves himself open for counters and relies on athleticism to overcome technique. Duran was as technically sound as a fighter can be when incorporating that style.

But, on top of everything else... Great talent, technique, incredibly heavy hands, great chin, etc... Duran's aura and, frankly, his very raw meanness showed in just about every fight that he ever entered into. It wasn't a game to him, nor was it all about money or creating a legacy... He genuinely despised his opponents and he wanted to kill them in a real, sort of scary way if he is standing in front of you.

So, yes... Stylistically, it would be a pretty fascinating bout. But, Duran in his prime was a flat-out monster and that goes way beyond his legacy or whatever. If you are asking me whether or not I would favor Floyd Mayweather at, say 135, over Duran at the same weight? No, I would not.

If Jose Luis Castillo gave Floyd fits at that weight (which he did in both fights), Duran would be a very steep hill to climb.

Rios-Alvarado already heating up. Now this is what you want to see. You won't see many clinches and dancing in this fight.
