Rematches between punchers and boxers?

  • Latest update: Apologies for errors yesterday, due to php resource allocation needs configuring to suit the server, and can only do that when we know what's not working.

    There should be no more errors now, but there might be a bit more configuring required. If you get any error 500's or other errors browsing, please send me a pm with your ip address, time of error (and your timezone if not uk), and the page you're trying to access.

    Should be leading to some big performance increase and new features. Thanks to everyone for patience and support.

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.
