Default Re: Pernell Whitaker vs Wilfred Benitez at 147lbs

Pernell struggled and got a gift against Wilfredo Rivera who fought in a slightly similar style to Benitez.

Benitez wins this fight clearly, no debating.

Very tough fight to even attempt to handicap...Whomever is more capable of making the other lead might definitely play a part. Whitaker's jab might be the dominant punch of the fight, and southpaw stance and speed would trouble Benitez.However Benitez was excellent at slipping then going to the body with right hands and left hooks. When he got inside, I think he would attempt combinations, but would be offset by Whitaker's movement. Each fighter would actually cancel the other out...Benitez did possess a quick short right hand lead that may pay off as the fight progressed...Definitely the judges will make the call. Whitaker scores more punches...Benitez scores the harder punches...
