Chavez at lww definitely.

Norris at lmw.

Ike and Tito as we champ.

Can't think of anyone else at all tbh.

I'd of loved to have seen Taylor/Whitaker.

Classic 101 stylistic fight.

Chavez in 89 - Chavez should have remained at lightweight instead of going over old territory with Roger Mayweather

Trinidad in 95 - King should have stopped hiding Tito and risked the fight

Quartey in 96 - Whitaker shouldn't have stumbled on Rivera, making him do a rematch and basically squandering the year. Even in 98 Ike-Pea would have been an ok fight if Pea wasn't doing lines non-stop.

Norris in 96 - It would have been fun to see Pea try and Hurtado Norris. He may have been able to do it by that stage. Norris was on the precipice around that time.


Although it would have been nice to see him fight Camacho, Rosario and Taylor those fights were never really viable options.

Chavez in 88. Pea should have challenged the man instead of Ramirez.

it's unique how hard it is to come up with 5 names across the 3 weight divisions whitaker was competing in. it shows how stacked his resume is and he didn't avoid anyone
