GGG may have better punching form on the inside, but beating up Proksa and Rosado don't guarantee he'll cave in Chavez Jr., who took Martinez's best shots all night.
I don't think he was taking Sergio's best punches all night, Sergio wasn't committing as much.
Lee might have fought slightly better comp (questionable, no Ring top 10 opponent), but didn't fare too well did he? But like the poster before you noted, Chavez routinely goes the distance with fringe contenders or worse.
