He holds multiple titles including the WBC Lightweight Champion, WBC Welterweight, WBA Light Middleweight , WBC Middleweight and WBA Junior Middleweight Champion. His seemingly endless stamina and persistent ferocity have pitted him against many of the world’s best light and middleweight fighters, arguably making Duran one of the 10 best boxers of all time.
