Haha, very true. We need an expert for this one.
I believe it will be a split decision. I would
say Pernell's southpaw stance would trouble Benitez,
but Benitez was so accomplished and versatile
imo. McGrain? Haha

Unfortunately a Draw 15

With a scorecard of 1-1 in rounds, with an incredible 13 scored Even.

For those who didn't know, Wilfred was a converted southpaw.

Can't you just see Referee Mills Lance screaming at the two 'stylists' to fight.

Nothing but 'pitty-pat' punches.

I'd give a SMALL edge to Pea, because in a battle of stylists like that, the better and more versatile jab usually ends up being the difference.

But it'd be a bore. Missed punches galore. Thing is, both of them had stellar, unreal defensive abilties, and weren't blazing fast. They'd really struggle to hit eachother.

Would be a great, tactical inside fighting chess match, with Pea being the busier and more effective body puncher in a nip and tuck affair.

I don't see it being a pose-off. Both are likely to mix it up.

Whitaker was the better fighter overall,and pound for pound,but Benitez edges it,for me,at Welterweight.

I know what you mean,Pepe. Great fighters,but bad style mix for a crowd pleasing fight.
