Re: Aaron Pryor vs Julio Cesar Chavez at 140
Pryor by decision. Like Ali, peak Pryor was a freak of nature who body punishment was simply not effective at slowing down. Arguello's pinpoint head and body shots failed to hinder Aaron much. The Hawk at his pinnacle altitude may have been impervious. With his adrenaline pumping, the best way to decision him would have been with the defensive skills of a Whitaker, Locche, or Benitez. Pryor was a headhunter with an exposed chin. Make him miss, and make him pay. I don't think Chavez would have made him miss enough to take a decision, and I expect Pryor would be moving around more, rather than swarming.
Pryor UD 15 Chavez
