Re: Kid Gavilan
I know what you're saying but Gavilan was very strong he was, like Curry, long in the arms.
De La Hoya was not stronger IMO. I see you didn't want to include him quite in the upper echelon, but just to touch on him anyway, Gavilan's gas tank is so superior to his.
I do agree but a lot of modern 'welterweights' would not be in Gavilan's time (goes for any weight really with only a few exceptions)
