Arguello by stoppage. Just too good. There's very few fighters in history that can beat a prime Arguello and Barrera is not one of them.

I agree with an Arguello stoppage, but i think Barrera would make it an interesting fight. Barrera takes an early points lead, but Arguello's shots begin to take their toll and stops him somewhere between 9-11.

Alexis is too big and hit's too hard. That's the determining factor in this match up for me.

Barrera doesn't have the kind of style that would see him lasting the distance. He'd have his moments early on, likely tagging Arguello early and often before Alexis got his timing down as per usual and lowered the boom.

I think at 126 MABs speed causes Arguello problems and sees him getting off first and rought Arguello up. Arguello would score qith the jab and right, but his lack of speed would see him be less successful.

It really depends which MAB shows up, the aggressive MAB of Morales 1 (not at 126 granted) would be a much better foil the more negative MAB that showed up in the rematch and against Hamed. That MAB gets picked off, an aggressive MAB makes a technical war off it, 1 where his speed would see him see equal success and I think that'd be a close fight

Its worth noting MAB did reasonably well past his prime against this eras Arguello. At 130 and up its all Arguello though
