Man, I can imagine a lot of angry people viewing this topic clicked secretly really looking forward to being able to unleash some seriously furious replies. This isn't something I think myself, actually, but it's something I've heard Duran himself said. A long time ago, in a discussion regarding the success of MMAists such as Yuki Nakai and Sakuraba against much bigger men, someone asked if anyone thought something similar could happen in boxing. Old champs obvioulsy came up - Dempsey beating Big Jess Willard senseless at 180 and so on - then someone said that Roberto Duran (I'm pretty sure it was Duran) had claimed he would knock Ali out if he saw him in the street. I've obviously got no actual source for this, though, and I don't seem to be able to Google anything up. Has anyone else heard this, or a similar story? Cheers.
