Whitaker would win pretty handily i think. Camacho does nothing better than him, including inside fighting.

Whitaker by wide UD. Camacho had all the speed and talent in the world, but the skill and intelligence differance would be the story of the fight. Pea would keep that brilliant southpaw jab in Camacho's face all night, and outbox him every round.

Well Camacho certainly had faster hands, but it wouldnt matter.

you really dont think camachos faster hands, consistant jab and lighting combinations would have affected Whitaker?

No. Because Pea was hardly slow himself, and his jab would throw off Hector very early and make it difficult for Camacho to get off. I can see Camacho being competitive for the first 3-4 rounds, but by the mid rounds Pea would have him completely figured out and wouldnt look back.

BTW - I remember hearing that Pea used to kick Camacho's ass in sparring.

I could see a prime Camacho giving FLOYD a tough fight, but I really cant see him doing much w/Sweet Pea.

Another tossup in the truest sense of the word. Somebody else said it best- this would be like watching two eels fight.

I can't decide. Too tough to call. I'll just say this one ends in a draw.

A good jab and timing beats speed. Whitaker had one of the best jabs ever and great timing. His jab would throw Camacho off-balance and out of his rythm and set up Pea´s own combinations. Very clear UD for Whitaker. Something like 9-3.

I heard Pea did so when he was still an amateur. Never saw prove for this though.

I've heard that too. I've also heard it was the other way around.

Whitaker was greater. He could get to a higher level and had the skills to win fights any way he wanted. Camacho had great speed and looked dazzling, but he did not have the defensive skills of a Whitaker. Whitaker is ATG and Camacho is not.

I am not surprised by the overwhelming result so far in Whitaker's favor, but have a hard time figuring out why Camacho is made to be light years away from Whitaker's level.

I would lean towards Whitaker in a very close decision, but don't see the blowout many would indicate

I agree with this 100%.
