Default Re: Better boxer/puncher - Alexis Arguello or Carlos Zarate

Than Arguello?! No way!

Than Saijo? Yeah, but didn't look all that much like Arguello. Then again, it's not a lookalike thread is it? Styleswise I mean.

Was just throwing it out there.

BTW, I'ma bump your 'cultured left hands' thread later with a suggestion I think you'll like.

Naplloes is a predictable robotic boxer. Something Arguello and Zarate are not.

I think Zarate was more adaptable. I think he was strategically more brilliant and that some of the more serious breakdowns he put on opponents were brilliantly calculated. Zarate would often be in control of fights he was losing, or having a share in. He cracked guys who didn't even know they were being cracked until too late. Arguello cracked fighters in a similar way but it was just by being extremely good. He didn't have the layers Zarate did. I also think Zarate was the better balanced puncher who was capable of delivering more types of KO without commiting in the same way. I think his much higher KO% is born of this.


I genuinely don't think there is anything strange or laughable in the comparison, and I think a lot of people pick Zarate for a reason.

I can't see any reason to think Zarate is superior myself. Arguello fought far better opposition, and also has clinical decimations on his ledger.

Arguello had the better one punch power as well. And was also a deadly body puncher.

I couldnt agree more. I think Arguello was easily better at everything but footspeed as I stated befor. He was near textbook perfect as anyone in history. I respectfully disagree with McGrain. I feel Arguello was the much more layered fighter. P4P Arguello by KO.
