Default Re: Why did Arguello quit in the 2nd fight against Pryor? Is it a lack of heart?

But Pryor was just a great fighter, and I don't think Floyd has fought a hungry young champion like a Pryor yet. Arguello came back in 1986 and fought Billy Costello and won by knockout, but Costello was not as good as Pryor.
Great post... Arguello was gunning for his 4th belt against a true champ.
