Benitez and Leonard had much more boxing skills than Pacquiao. Duran was smarter than Pacquiao in the ring which is the reason why I don't see Pacquiao winning. Prime Duran doesn't lose to somebody who's not smarter than him unless he's seriously outsized.

Agreed, I think Duran v Mosley would have been a classic!!

Pac enjoys fighting way too much. When he gets tagged with a good shot he likes to stand and trade, and that would be his downfall against Duran.

Duran had very good timing, and good timing beats good speed. I just don't see Pac getting the better of the exchanges and he wouldn't be able to resist trading punches with Duran, especially if he got hit iwth a good shot and was shaken up.

I completely agree, Pac likes trading. But with the lessons we know...Leonard I vs Leonard II for instance I will go under the assumption that with the right game plan Pacquiao has the tools to do the job because his movement is excellent...if Pacquiao fights his natural fight and trades then I agree, absolutely

We talkin Prime Duran here?

Then Duran Late KO. He is just really smart, not to mention his power.

The best I give Pacman is that he puts up a fight, but that's about it.
