Shame these two basically just missed each other, although Nelson was always eying this fight.
Well like i mentioned earlier I dont think Chavez was at his peak yet,Lockridge was competetive but I thought Chavez won convincingly, the Laporte fight was pretty close but i had Chavez. Remember that Azumah got a gift against Fenech. Went 1-2-1 against Leija should have been 1-3(Leija deserved the win) and the 1st Ruelas fight could have gone either way, but no shame in that cause i think Ruelas and Leija were unerrated fighters. Bottom Line looking at there resumes and tapes(most important) I think Chavez would have taken him at JL
