Rematches between punchers and boxers?

Is it true that when big punchers and slick technical boxers have an extremely close fight, the better boxer tends to pull away in the rematch? I can think of several prominent examples: Floyd/Maidana, Leonard/Duran, Ward/Gatti...
Are there any famous counter examples?

Marciano vs. Walcott 2, the first fight Walcott was winning before getting ko'd in 13, but Marciano destroyed him in 1 round in the rematch.

Is Leonard a better boxer than Duran?

In the purest sense I think he is.

But what is a boxer after all?
What does the purest sense mean? Duran had skills for days. There is no right way to box anyway. It's the sweet science of bruising but for some reason the last two words get omitted.
