I don't see a shutout because i think Hearns is possibly the only 147 or lower in history who could stop Whitaker.

Styles make fights and Pea would not be able to get close enough without getting caught. Hearns by wide UD.

What do you think on 1981 Hearns v 1993 Whitaker?

I think Hearns would win on points widely, but not every single round, and I think this is more on account of him being a natural welterweight than anything deficient in Pea's game.

Has there ever been a tall, rangy lightweight that you could envisage outboxing Pea? The tallest guys who fought at lightweight that I can think of (Oscar, Arguello, etc) would not achieve this.

If he catches Pernell, there won't be no need to at all..Otherwise, it's possible.Don't see P getting past Hearns' jab.
