Just because Chavez crowded Rosario, doesn't mean Boom Boom could.
It goes without saying but, Chavez was a light year above Mancini.
Rosario had enough power to starch Mancini early. Bramble was thought to have the best chin in boxing when he fought Chapo, and got starched in 2. And Rosario hurt Camacho worse than ANYBODY did with one left hook.
Boom Boom would only walk into but so many Chapo counters before ending up on his back.
