I think Joel would have done better were it a younger, faster version with reflexes intact - but by that same measure Juan was no spring chicken himself.

Of course peak lightweight Roger has a significant age "advantage" over the version of Marquez that campaigned (campaigns ) there.
Cassamayor seemed to change his style to less of a mover in his last few fights as well. I think age played a factor in both. Cassamoyer was more of a boxer mover at his best rather than a slick boxer puncher.
