That was a great win. He outboxed Casamayor and showed tremendous focus for the first 8 rounds. That focus slipped a bit in the later rounds, but showed his trademark resilience by battling through the knockdown to take the decision. A top notch tactical boxing match with some good action later.

That you think Corrales actually deserved the decision for being soundly beaten is bad enough;but claiming that he somehow outboxed Casamayor? Jesus christ.

I'm one of the biggest Chico fans around, but there's NO case to be made for him being great, UNLESS you mean as a puncher.

He was a great puncher, but overall as a fighter very good.

He was a great fighter to watch but not great in the sense of being in the very elite class.

He beat Floyd which is a pretty exceptional feat.

He crushed Floyd's hands to shit with his face. Floyd never wanted to tangle with Corrales again after that. That's just a fact. That's why there's never been a rematch. It's also why some suspect Chico fell to foul play.

The third Casamayor fight can go either way.

Corrales has underdog wins over:
Freitas and Garcia (both undefeated, both KO wins) a win over LW Kingpin Castillo, again a KO
w12 Casamayor
Manfredy KO
Gainer KO

Great is used too loosely so I will side with very good. HOF worthy, being a part of the greatest fight ever, and all.
