I wasn't really big on his skills, but he was a really tough guy with good stamina and a good punch.
I definitely think he would have beaten the likes of Cotto and Hatton at 140.
It's a pity he did nothing during what should have been the peak years of his career (88-92), where he could have built himself a truly fine legacy.
Would have loved to have seen him fight Buddy MCGirt, Hector Camacho, Rafael Pineda and eventually Sweet Pea. He might have come up short against Pea, but those other fights would have been winnable for him if he was at his best (a McGirt fight would have been close to a 50-50, but I'd slightly favour Buddy).
Good read, do you think he would of beat a prime Chavez ?
