If not the best he was certainly very very good. In the top 5 at least. and this is coming from a non-mayweather fan...

I have heard many great things about Chocolate, but haven't seen much from him TBH.

I know Jose Napoles has stated that Kid Chocolate was his idol.

Is it because you can't find a way to defend Floyd? Looks like it. Keep sucking his nuts
You have mentioned nothing that would put any of those guys ahead of Mayweather resume wise.

You list Olivareswho was at 126 as being apart of Arguello's legacy at 130.

Then you go on to say Chavez beat Lockridge, Roger Mayweather, and Ramirez then claim in good conscience that Ramirez beat Pernell Whitaker.


That was a robbery nobody but the judges though Ramirez won that night. It was a complete schooling. At best you can give him 3 rounds. You drunk ass bum ass Pactard. ****ing fetching nickels out of the gutter then try and talk boxing.

As for Arguello's resume...I'd say Escalera was better than anyone on Floyd's 130lbs resume.

Actually considering the fact that he's the most hated fighter in the world right now, it's amazing that he's almost winning this poll.

A+ wins:
Diego Corrales
Genaro Hernandez
*Corrales was an undefeated, P4P ranked matchup nightmare. Genaro was the lineal champ and is a top 10 super featherweight on his own, and undefeated at the weight, his only loss to Oscar at LW. And the fights were massacres. Floyd did things to these two that no one else had.

B+ wins:
Jesus Chavez
Angel Manfredy
* Manfredy was hot going into their fight in Dec of '98. The winner was almost certain to win Fighter of the Year. The Chavez win was very good and played out impressively. Chavez was only ranked behind Freitas and Casamayor at the time in the semi-clear cut order of 130 at the time.

C- wins:
Carlos Hernandez
Carlos Gerena
* The Gerena Round 1 is one of my favorite Mayweather rounds. These fights were somewhat impressive in their own way. The Hernandez win wasn't dominant, but a guy like Carlos Hernandez is no chump.

D wins:
****** Juuko
Carlos Rios
Gregorio Vargas
* These defenses meant little. They serve as showcases and defenses against top 15-20 type guys.

-1998 Fighter of the Year

-Lineal champion with 8 defenses with 3+ years as champ.
Good post

PBF boxes circles around Agruello at 130 too much lateral movement speed defense and pop for Arguello to deal with.
