His life outside of ring had changed, he was heavy into cocaine by then, and lets face it, he was hurt in that fight.

These guys man... Arguello quit because he had enough of the beating. Ortiz had a broken jaw... Lol!
So did Ali... So did Morrison. Danny Williams won by KO while fighting one armed due to severely dislocated shoulder. Arthur Abraham also fought with severely broken jaw.

It's tiresome coming to these forums as a trainer and a fan, and have to listen to all these armchair fighters/tough guys ridicule and judge the people that out there lives on the line for our entertainment, and to make a living.
So he quit... so what! There are 10 guys in my gym that could run any one of you tough guys out of the ring without throwing a punch. You people are something else.
Amen !! It takes enormous courage to don the gloves and walk in that ring. Yet you have some no-nothing morons, who the only thing they punch is a keyboard, making comments about fighters hearts ??? How pathetic ...

Valid point about Ortiz.Saturday night was a perfect example of the double standards that exist because Ortiz had a horrendous injury and was perfectly entitled to quit.
Garcia wasn't having trouble breathing and with a snib that size,breakage is always a risk.

But there are some subjects you have to look deeper that just the result on paper when you discuss them MVC.
In theory,the basis of your point has some validity,but some guys desrev a bit more respect,and if it sounds unfair,it's just the way it is.

Nice to see an Arguello thread in the general, shame its a shit one by MVC but its better than another Pac/Floyd one.

While you're at it, why not start a thread about Ali's quit job against Holmes?

Of course Arguello is a legend and RIP. But why did he stay down? He wasn't even hurt.
Could of gotten up???
He was beat.
He had nothing left --- plain out of gas you dumb ****.

You're an idiot. "I was not that hurt, I did not want to risk my life" at the press conference. This shows me you haven't watched the fight and you know nothing about Pryor/Arguello 1 or 2. He was knocked down multiple times, but he was not that hurt, he even said it himself.

Too bad he didn`t have your heart, we all know you never would quit in a fight ...

Have you ever been in the ring.
Have you ever had a fight where you were pushed to the limit?
THATS WHAT I THOUGHT.

Arguello could easily have folded up shop following the first kd in the rematch; the fact that he didn't and tried his damnedest to remain competitive against a younger, stronger guy who had previously knocked him out should answer any questions about the guy's heart.
