Duran works the room, ribs Leonard and Hearns

Roberto "Hands of Stone" Duran was a hit at today's press conference kicking off the Premier Boxing Champions series on NBC.

Boxing legend Roberto Duran joined his former nemesis in the ring Sugar Ray Leonard and Thomas "The Hit Man" Hearns at the announcement of the Premier Boxing Champions series on NBC. 

Duran, who beat Leonard to capture a title in 1980, in a fight dubbed "The Brawl in Montreal," eventually surrendered it back to Leonard that same year with the famous "No Mas" fight.

These days, the legends reunited to talk about how the PBC was ready to bring boxing back to network prime-time television and back to cultural relevance. 

Duran spent time after having fun and giving advice to the new crop of great fighters who were in attendance. Here's a few of our favorite moments from Duran's appearance.
