Much has happened in the years since Duran Duran ushered in the '80s and the so-called new romantic era with the group's pretty-boy dance rock. Since conquering the world with its breakthrough hit "Planet Earth," the group and its synthetic sound have been successively replaced by hair metal, grunge and hip-hop. Yet throughout it all, one thing's remained the same: the group's die-hard devotees, or Duranies. A bona fide phenom circa 1982, Duraniacs, as they were then called, aren't as demonstrative today as they were when they blasted cassettes of "Girls on Film" from their boom boxes, dancing along in sleeveless concert T-shirts.

Pop Music CriticDURAN DURANDuran Duran (Capitol 98876)Considering that the career of most teen idols is usually shorter than puberty itself, Duran Duran deserves credit simply for having lasted a dozen years now. So in that respect, the success of the group's current single, "Ordinary World," is nothing short of miraculous -- who'd have thought these pretty boys would still be producing memorable singles at this stage of the game? Before getting too effusive, though, it should be added that the rest of "Duran Duran," the group's ninth and newest album, is somewhat less laudable.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Will this finally be "no mas" for Roberto Duran?There was every indication that would be the proper decision at the Convention Center last night as the fiercely proud Panamanian, 43, was dominated by a younger and faster Vinny Pazienza, who easily defended the somewhat dubious International Boxing Council super-middleweight title.Duran, who began fighting 28 years ago and has won world championships in four different weight classes, looked every bit his age as Pazienza consistently beat him to the punch in a fast-paced 12 rounds.

Simon Brown, the International Boxing Federation champion, has rejected a three-fight package leading to a $1 million match next spring against Roberto Duran while reaffirming his vow to sever boxing relations with manager Al Balboin and promoter Don Elbaum.Elbaum and Duran's promoter, Mike Acri of Erie, Pa., had set a Wednesday deadline for Brown's decision on fighting the former three-time world champion from Panama."I don't need any deadline, and I don't need Roberto Duran," Brown said yesterday from his home in Germantown.

Is success sweeter the second time around?Maybe so, but it isn't any better organized. And as much as Nick Rhodes and the other members of Duran Duran enjoy being back on top of the charts, they're a bit dismayed to find that things are just as crazy for them now as it was when they rode the first wave of Duranomania a decade ago."We'd thought we were better equipped for it, but it's getting pretty crazy out here," admits Rhodes from a tour stop in Charlotte, N.C. "When we looked at it on paper, this tour seemed beautifully routed and relatively civilized, as these things go."

You should see this," he says. "I'm looking out over the Aegean Sea. It's awesome." That's John Taylor, bassist for Duran Duran. He's calling from his hotel suite in Greece, where the band is scheduled to perform later that night. The other members -- lead singer Simon LeBon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, guitarist Andy Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor (none of the Taylors are related, by the way) -- are unavailable. The view from his window must be captivating. "Marvelous," he whispers. In the past nine months or so, Taylor and his band mates have had little time to sit still.

The Panamanian doubled up in pain and walked slowly to his corner.Referee Vic Drakulich called timeout and signaled for ring physician Flip Homansky to examine Duran.
