Default Aaron Pryor vs. Henry Armstrong

It's just not fair if someone isn't KO'd in this one, that is, for those of us who get a rush from that....

I tend to think Pryor is a better version of Armstrong (not underrating Armstrong greatness).

Look at Armstrong's experience fighting pressure fighters and then look at Pryor's.

I like Aaron, but I tend to go with Henry here.

I was wrong. Pryor would shift up to get perspective from the outside and Hank would continue to bring the pressure. He would bring the power Arguello had but for once Pryor wod have someone who can stand up to his assault, dish it out, and dish out more.

Pryor would have to try something else, and then he'd fight back again. Armstrong grits it out to take a very hard-fought and exciting decision.

Great fight.

It be very amazing to see what happens when these two clash, me tinks a world record for punches thrown will be set. IMO Pryor is more dynamic and more multi-dimensional than Armstrong, but over 15 it will be very interesting if Pryor could continually stand up to Armstrong's assualt. I think if Pryor's tries to box him he'll win, maybe.
