Default Re: Ruben Olivares v Carlos Zarate

The more I think about it, the more heavily I favor Zarate. I think one would have to. Both can box (I disagree heavily with the statement here by one poster that said he was more of a slugger. He was a highly scientific threshing machine, there was an awful lot of boxing science that went into what he did, just as much as Olivares), both could punch like crazy......the main difference was in how each was affected by return fire, and Ruben could be had. Zarate was a tougher nut to crack.

All other things being equal then, I use the durability angle as the tiebreaker and pick Zarate by stoppage before the tenth.
