Default Kid Gavilan v Jose Napoles

Two of the greatest welterweights ever. Who wins this one ?

I'd take Napoles to pull off a close decision in a thriller of a bout.

Mantequilla Napoles outboxes Kid and gets an UD

Napoles by a close majority decision, being a bit smoother than the Kid, but it will come down to the final two rounds of the fight.

I've always liked Gavilan in this one, based on his height and reach advantages and better all-around speed. Plus Napoles was a bad bleeder (which certainly doesn't bode well against as sharp a puncher as Gavvy), and Gavvy proved himself against a better and deeper level of opposition that Napoles did.

Agree with My2Sense, I've got Gavilan in this one.

Napoles superior firepower would be the tiebreaker in this one. He takes a UD.

I like Gavilan for the reasons M2S gives, but I don't see this being anything but razor close, even if they fought 100 times.
