I'm pretty sure VD will say Duran. He loves to reminisce about the old school fighters.

Duran is not a 154 pounder. He was CHAMP at 135 for a long long time. He moved up to welterweight at 135 (beating Leonard) and yes kept moving up even reaching 154. That is like asking if Kareem abdul Jabbar played Wilt Chamberlain when he was 47, how would he do? Answer is:.....DUMB QUESTION.

Mayweather has only fought once @ 154- against De La Hoya. Duran fought way more Light Middleweight (Super Welterweight) fights than Mayweather.

Why are you not asking at lightweight? At 154 I think Mayweather because he would run and dance and win on points. Duran was a like a turtle at 154. SLOW....but still tough and could still punch. But he could not chase.

So why would they fight at 154 if neither have fought at that weight much???

Mayweather much more comfortable @ 147. Would you like me to make that the weight?

LOL

Now what is your answer...

Now answer...
Then make it Mayweather vs Sugar Ray Leonard. Leonard was a natural welterweight and that is significant. Duran beat Leonard at 147 the first time and was in GREAT shape. And never got in that kind of shape again, He did it once and was great at it and then went downhill getting big and never the same again. He was so talented that he still did well but not right to not be in tip top shape.,

Would be the same as Sugar Ray Leonard's fights. If they fight, Duran wins. If Mayweather wants to hit and run, then he wins.

Sorry KR. Do not mean to be difficult but as you know fighters at different weights is like night and day.

All fighters being at their prime. Duran would hunt him down and Leonard would definitely win on points?.

Mayweather would have a hard time cracking the top 50 boxers of all time....he might just as well retire now and get ready for Dancing With The Stars....

Fight wouldn't happen. Mayweather would duck Duran.
It must be nice to be Pacqioa; whenever the fight with Floyd doesn't happen it's always Floyd's fault to some. Floyd is the undefeated champion and people think Manny has the right to set all the fight stipulations... yet that never happens in boxing. Hell, people think it's reasonable for Manny to get 50% of the money despite being the CHALLENGER. Floyd, by being undefeated, has earned his spot and earned his right to set negotiations. At this point, if you haven't figured out that this is Bob Arum trying to ruin Mayweathers legacy then you just don't understand or follow that side of boxing. Arum hates Floyd, and knows exactly what Floyd will and won't do to fight - Arum continually demands things Floyd would never agree to. If this was a negotiation between Floyd and Manny, and not Arum, the fight would have happened 2 years ago.

Fuck Bob Arum.

Floyd is no more of the champion at WW than Pacquiao. The buy rates of each guys last couple ppvs are very similar. Sorry but a 50/50 split is far from unreasonable.
