Great match up this would be a very hard fight to pick. Arguello could break Esteban down and stop him in the championship rounds but I think DeJesus has enough to outbox Alexis and gain an early lead which makes all the difference at the end. Dejesus UD 9-6.

Great matchup.

Alexis had the power to hurt and beat Esteban.

On the other hand, DeJesus did have the skills and smarts to defeat Arguello. Not that Arguello was bad in these departments.

I pick Alexis to win 2 out of 3, but would not oppose anyone who would reverse that.

Classic Arguello fight. DeJesus would be ahead on points when he'd be KO'd, probably around round 13.

I think Arguellos boxing skills are being overlooked here. I personally think they are good enough to gain parity with DeJesus. The telling factor is the power difference so for me Alexis wins 8-7, 9-6 or maybe a late TKO

Agreed with the first part. I don't, however, think Esteban goes the distance.

Yeah my first thoughts also. Giving DeJesus benefit of the doubt as Arguello is one of my favourite fighters all time and thought i may be a touch biased

I too think Arguello takes it in the championship rounds. Over 10 possibly DeJesus on points.

arquello would be getting outboxed and losing rounds but his brutal bodypunching would take its toll heading into the late rounds. His pinpoint head shots would then finish dejesus somewhere around the 12th round in an exciting battle.

I do think DeJesus is capable of winning this fight to tell you the truth.
But it would have to be a situation that suits him..Like Al said over the 10, much like how Fernandez mugged Alexis.
Id actually be relatively confident of picking DeJesus over 10..and I think over 12 its a closer call than many think.

At best over the 15 I could envisage Esteban being slightly ahead on points as he fades and gets stopped around the 13th or 14th however.

I think they are quite evenly matched...its just that certain weaknesses of Esteban complement certain strengths of Alexis and over the championships distance they will more than likely come into play.
Just how I see it.

Arguello might force DeJesus to come forward and lead, and DeJesus wasn't comfortable doing that (see his fights with Cervantes and Duran III). In fact, I think this fight might bear some similarity to DeJesus' fight with Cervantes.

I'd take Arguello to finish strong and win by clear decision or late-round stoppage.

If DeJesus can get this scheduled as 10 rd fight I would give him an even chance or just below. I just see Arguello as to much for him in a 12/15 rd fight. I would lean towards a late arguello stoppage
