About Roberto Duran
Duran is a Panamanian professional boxer, widely regarded as one of the greatest boxers of all time. A versatile brawler in the ring, he was nicknamed “Manos de Piedra” (“Hands of Stone”) during his career. In 2002, he was chosen by The Ring to be the fifth greatest fighter of the last 80 years. The Associated Press voted Duran as the No. 1 lightweight of the 20th century. Many even consider him the greatest lightweight of all time. He held world titles at four different weights – lightweight (1972-79), welterweight (1980), light middleweight (1983-84) and middleweight (1989). He was the second boxer to have fought a span of five decades, the first being Jack Johnson.
