I guess quitting could be interpreted as beating yourself...Duran, he beat himself in teh second as much as anything, Leonard was brilliant but Duran over Leonard was one of the best performances from a p4p great, he'd beat anyone on that day
Disagree with your post generally. Leonard was beating the hell out of Duran by the end of the first fight. If he'd moved more in the first fight rather than engaged, he could have come on strong to take a clear decision.
It would always be competitive.
