Don't be scurred. I think Shane is tough and quick enough in his prime to make this fight VERY interesting.


Duran was a tremedous package at 135 and it would a be a tough argument for Shane. Its a good scrap but I think Duran outboxes him.... but at 147 I think Shane could fight with him on even terms. Shane filled out to 147 much better then Duran.

No. The Shane Mosley that beat Oscar DelaHoya the first go 'round would frustrate Duran with superior movement and leap-in hooks. I cannot fathom a scenario where Duran would convingly outbox a prime Shane. Would be an excellent match though.

Duran wouldn't outbox Shane, but he would out-tough him.

Shane is a very brave fighter. Sometimes he's too brave...he would get sucked into trading with Duran, and Roberto would wear him down.

Yeah, spot on.

Duran would make Shane go to war with him and just like Leonard did, Shane would lose on points.

Duran does have the tools to outbox Mosley, though. He's fast enough himself, had a good jab, and was slicker than sometimes given credit for.


Mosley would be competitive but doesn't have the skill to outbox Duran.

I think Duran would be better off trying to outbox Shane. Shane is a MUCH better body puncher then SRL. Duran might find himself on the losing end of those close quarter battles.

Duran wins 99 out of 100 times. Duran is just a different monster. Whoever said Duran can't handle speed is a fucking idiot.

Duran beats Mosley at any weight.

I also agree..If Mosley for some stupid reason decided to fight it out with him like he tried to do with Mayorga,he would get a major whooping..No matter what Mosley did,Duran would come out on top at 35 and 47..Duran was a savage..

Duran was a smart fighter which is a key trait of all Ray Arcel fighters..Arcel thought Duran was involved in a fix during the Leonard fight so he left him..
