Roberto Duran says he's hated a few of his opponents during his professional career, which started more than 27 years ago when he was three months shy of his 16th birthday: Sugar Ray Leonard, ugh; Davey Moore, boo; Esteban DeJesus, daggers; Iran Barkley, a bum.But he regards these former champions (and guys he beat, by the way) as bosom buddies today when he thinks about his Saturday night opponent on pay per view, Vinny Pazienza. "He's a big mouth," says Duran. "He's a clown, a joke. He shoots his mouth off and he's no good."
