I think I'd have to go along with Addie on that one.

Chavez was a brawler, no doubt about it. If you gave him a bit of movement he was done for.

You're thinking of Duran. Chavez couldn't best guys with skill; he had to be bigger and stronger so he could wear you down with his wild swings.

An educated pressure fighter. If all it took was a bit of movement to defeat Chavez then he would have lost a lot sooner than he did. The likes of Aguilar, Mayweather, Pratchett etc. all offered movement to no avail. It took a Pernell Whitaker to get the better of Julio, and there's no shame in being bested by Sweet Pea.

He was a brawler but he was more than just that. You can't fight in close at that level for all that time the way he did without taking clean shots back unless you've got something about you.

That fight was a draw. Lol. Roger Mayweather was a glass jawed timid joke.

JCC would tear through the divisions today. He'd be winning up at 154lbs. Just sayin'.

What's with classic guys acting like guys like Mayweather could fight? Chavez beat bums. Bums! Had he come along ten years later Zab Judah would've schooled him!

Yeah right. If Frankie Randall can easily beat him in his prime what would even Kermit Cintron do to him? Boxing has developed since Chavez's time. JMM would KTFO Chavez

If you'd Terry Norris and 'all the way to cruiserweight' I'd be more inclined to support your view.

On a more serious note, I can't think of a worse style match-up for Judah.

Adrien Broner could have gone 100-0 against Chavez opposition.

If Cotto and Matthyse could wreck Zab's shit in the later rounds, then one could imagine the beating he'd take at the hands of JC Superstar.

As for the question, I think Lopez would be my choice if the question asked was who had prettier technique. But that wasn't what was asked, and based on what I have seen of Jofre his overall skill-set would have to be considered superior to Finito's.
