Default Re: Benitez vs Meldrick Taylor @ 140

I may have to agree with Robbi here. A super fast volume puncher is never good for a fighter who makes his living off point-scoring counters. Benitez would counter a lot, but you can't slip and counter each punch of an 8 punch combo. You'd be slipping a few, landing a punch or two yourself, and eating a few. Not to mention the constant workrate would make it very difficult for the more stationary Benitez (in comparison to other slicksters) to settle into a groove. I think Taylor by hard-fought Decision.
