If Duran connected he could KO Pacquiao agreed, but if Pacquiao's movement was the same as against Margarito but reducing the amount of time trading I think he could come to a decision win...Duran never did too well against fast guys with great movement...guys like Benitez and Leonard with the right gameplan could frustrate Duran...Duran likes the Haglers of the world where they will stand and fight...
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.
