He lost the belt to Héctor Camacho on July 14, 2001, in what turned out to be his final fight. Durán suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung in a car accident later that year, and officially retired in January 2002 with a career record of 103-16-0 and 70 knockouts. One of the few boxers to win sanctioned championships in four weight classes and compete professionally across five decades, he is considered one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters of all time.
Durán met his father for the first time after a 1976 fight in Los Angeles, and they forged a good relationship.
Durán remained active as a boxing promoter after retiring from the sport. He was inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame in 2006 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2007.
