philly, you make it hard to disagree with but i do.
chocolate with faster, by a fair margin and competed with (and beat) a FAR better era than corrales did.
corrales was a good fighter, in a good era, that was beaten to SHIT by the best in that time. he was never great but had a good punch with solid fundamentals. his legacy is boosted by a good/great fight with castillo but he was never a elite skill level fighter
chocolate by UD in 12 rounds. corrales is befuddles by the 8th round and completed dominated over the last 4
