He's 1 of the few who stand a chance against Mayweather, if Mayweather stands stationary and let's Nelson be first or looks to exchange. If Nelson gets Mayweather in the pocket he'd out punch him in the exchanges. I'd still favour Mayweather with the right gameplan
Nelson Arguello is a good one, Arguello a better technician, Nelson decent in that regard and faster with a higher workrate
I'm not a fan but he'd overwhelm weaker SFWs and more so FWs
Yea he lost that, although he has better excuses than most, wasn't he recovering from Malaria at the time? That's what people say
I do think if Nelson was showing any signs of being affected by malaria he wouldn't have fought. That's not an easy thing to disguise is it? Look at the drubbing he took.
I actually think it's quite close in rounds, Nelson has a fair amount of success punching it out with Jeff. The 12th round sums it up.
If Nelson was sick at all in Fenech's defence he had no hands
