kid chocolate would be way too much for Diego Corrales.

I am not sure what to make of this one??? I think Chocalate was superior to Diego, but fought at FW in the days of same day weigh-ins (I know he had some above sfw fights as well) while Corrales was a natural SFW that would grow to LW with an extra day....I guess much might depend upon the rules of weight and weigh-in for me....But at this size I think Diego is to big and strong, significant height and reach to Corales as well...I look for Corrales to take a comfortable decision, w/ possibly a late stoppage...but Chocoalte keeps it interesting.

philly, you make it hard to disagree with but i do.

chocolate with faster, by a fair margin and competed with (and beat) a FAR better era than corrales did.

corrales was a good fighter, in a good era, that was beaten to SHIT by the best in that time. he was never great but had a good punch with solid fundamentals. his legacy is boosted by a good/great fight with castillo but he was never a elite skill level fighter

chocolate by UD in 12 rounds. corrales is befuddles by the 8th round and completed dominated over the last 4
