Re: Why did Arguello quit in the 2nd fight against Pryor? Is it a lack of heart?
Arguello was not "heartless". Have you seen the Escalera bouts? Olivares? Did you even watch the first Pryor fight, where he absorbed a ridiculous amount of punishment through 14 rounds? Arguello was at the tail-end of his career. He had many tough, hard fights under his belt, he just knew he couldn't beat Pryor that night. He gave it a hell of an effort but it just wasn't there.
