Default Re: Esteban DeJesus vs. Alexis Arguello

Arguello doesn't have the physical presence or same MOnzon-esque way of fighting tall that a 140 Cervantes does.His feet aren't as good either, he doesn't take the subtle half-steps and slides to the side that a Cervantes would use.By this stage he's become more of a tight, stiff legged Tito-esque fighter that can be turned repeatedly.

I think this would be very close.50\50 even.Dejesus will be vulnerable late, but his movement and own vicious offence may take enough starch out of Arguello and let him avoid a late KO.a similar sort of fight to the Marcel bout at 126, with possible mild controversy over the decision.
