Default Jeff fenech vs Johnny Famechon

Could Fenech catch up to Famechon or would Famechon be too slick for Fenech?

Well, if pressure fighters like Harada and Saldivar had success against them, then I see no reason why Fenech couldn't track Famechon down as well.

Yeah...I'd pick Fenech to wear Famechon down, score a couple of knockdowns, and emerge with a clear UD.

Slick boxers with average power were Fenechs bread and butter at his best (Greg Richardson,Jerome Coffee), who Fenech could bully to the ropes and work over until they were too battered to continue.
Fammo was very crafty,had great survival instincts (never stopped) and had the jab and footwork to frustrate Fenech for a few rounds,but he didn't have the type of power required to give Jeff problems.
Look for Fenech to begin to cut off the ring in the mid rounds,and through sheer volume of punches start to overwhelm Fammo.After hitting the canvas Fammo goes into survival mode and he needs all his wiles to finish the fight upright losing a unanimous decision.
Great match up though.

I think it could go either way. Sure Fammo lost to Saldivar but he wasn't outclassed. He did take a bit of a hiding from Harada but he was a GREAT fighter, and a level above Jeff imo.

If forced to pick I'd probably pick Fenech by a round or two, but I can't see it being anything but close.
