Default Re: A Arguello vs JC Chavez @ 135

Not a lot between these legendary soldiers.
I agree. Most fighters with the style of a Chavez will get stopped by Arguello at 135lbs - but Chavez possessed one of the greatest chins of all time. I don't see Arguello or any other Lightweight in history stopping the man - and therefore I feel Chavez will often take rounds on work rate, and sometimes smothering Arguello's work on the inside. It'd be close, though.
