Julio does indeed come foward, he does have a good chance to get wrecked by some of Pipino's bombs coming in but Chavez does have the boxing skills to outbox Cuevas, and thats what think he would do here. Pipino would have his moments of course with his crazy power, but i think Julio's chin and defense will hold up here and make it to the final bell with a decision win.
Agreed. It would be interesting to see a defensive Chavez in there with a bigger man. His come forward ability often overshadowed what was actually a very good aspect of his game. The boxing ability is definitely there, even though it was dormant for much of his career.
