If playing top trumps they'd have been up against a fighter with such statistics as:

Work rate - 10/10
Stamina - 10/10
Will - 10/10
Durability - 9.5/10
Strength - 9.5/10
Infighting - 9.5/10

More and more I think if you're looking for someone to beat Armstrong you need to start with the top ten lightweights, nobody lighter.
