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:
Boza-Edwards
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.

Corrales:
Freitas
Casamayor - lost the rivalry against Casa
JL Castillo 1 - lost the rivalry against JL
Manfredy
Juuko
Gainer
Garcia

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?
