It would take a past legend to beat him from 147 to 154 and even that would not be easy. Today, can't see anyone beating Floyd. From the past, I would say Leonard could do it, probably Hearns as well. Duran, ONLY if he could show what he showed at Lightweight and the first Leonard fight. More than likely, it's a repeat of Duran quitting like in the second Leonard fight. Benitez might hold him to a draw. He kills Curry, Starling, Breland.

Robinson beats him because he was so good there is no second.

duran was not slow and was definitely not easy to hit. his defense was superb. the duran that fought leonard the first time was capable of beating any fighter who ever lived.

Look at Duran at 147, he was getting pasted by Hearns, he had no defense whatsoever and facing Floyd with that lack of D would allow Money to potshot all day long. I remember the first fight with SRL and I thought Duran was mostly successful because Sugar fought Roberto's fight and not his own which was obviously proven in the infamous "No Mas" fight.

Yes, that first version of Duran was made to look more than what he was vs SRL but we all got to see the real Robert against a Master Boxer (of which Floyd and SRL are) and what the results will be and we saw what Tommy did to him.
