Arguello would've given Duran trouble with his accurate punching initially. However, Duran will inevitably find his way inside and break him down.

Duran would have had trouble in the early rounds then then he would ko arguello late, using a combination of sneaky defense, power punching, pressure, and "dirty" techniques.

all these would factor in. arguello had some problems with movements and preferred more sentitary targets....duran at his best would a whirlwind of in and out movement and feints

Arguello was one of my all time favorites...class guy...accurate punching...but I think that Duran's swarming style would...in the end...wear him down...

Yes you are probably right. I also love Arguello, but Duran might pick him apart in the later rounds and win a fight he where he was behind on points.
Enter J.C. Chavez to fight the winner. (I have not got the answer to that one)
