I go with Mayweather here, but it is certainly close and a worthwhile debate.
Thanks, I originally didn't think Mayweather would be #1 in the division (apart from H2H), but after seeing it here to compare, it's VERY hard for me to choose whose resume is better.

On your resume:
Genaro Hernandez is greater than Escalara.
Jesus Chavez or Prime Rafel Limon...too close to call.
Angel Manfredy or Naravette - VERY close but I prefer Manfredy
I prefer Mayweather's other wins over Arguello's other wins.

Corrales-Chacon - now that is a very hard one
Bobby Chacon's noticeable wins are:
prime Limon
a shot Olivares who got a punchers chance win over Jose Luis Ramirez,
The best win of his career IMO - Danny Lopez, and he beat a few others. Chucho Castillo was shot.

Casamayor - lost the rivalry against Casa
JL Castillo 1 - lost the rivalry against JL

Meh, I think I prefer Chacon, but it's pretty 50-50 and I'm open to thinking either way.

Now add to the fact that H2H Mayweather would beat Arguello and in general Mayweather looked more dominant than Arguello did against his opponents....

Erm...LOL I think Mayweather probably is the greatest 130 of all time haha, although I'd have to think this over a LOT. It's a VERY premature judgement.

The next step is:
Did Mayweather's opposition have a style that was harder for him than Arguello's?
