Easily Margarito.

Andrade has done precisely **** all, and has no skill whatsoever.

Sometime I just talk for talk..

Perfect - good for you and mr. Bute. I wish the two of you all the best in the upcoming exciting battles at 168.
But Andrade is one tough cookie - Bute must move, move, move and box. And avoid getting hit too much in the later rounds. If he does this he will win a wide UD.

Well, if he didn't have skill, why would he TKO all these B- guys?

It's not like he has one punch KO power or anything!

He might not be skilled compared to others but his workrate and toughness make him very dangerous. Unless you are a very good boxer who moves very well in and out, with great stamina, or a strong guy who can punch as well as Kessler, with great stamina, I cannot see how you will make it out alive against this guy. Perhaps I'm overrating him a bit. We'll see how he does against Bute.

Margarito, well, we already know his limits pretty well. We know what it takes to beat Andrade, but Kessler really had all the right things to dominate him like that, I feel...

I can see how one might argue that Margarito is better, but not how he is CLEARLY better.

What am I missing?

He had Margarito backing up all fight. Cotto is going to beat the brakes off of him. Margarito fans only remember the ear coming off b/c of his wide missed punches. Lujan was working Margarito and Cotto is the same stature but 1million times better.

I'll put it this way, if Taylor's a B+, Williams is a B-, he's a ****ing joke.

Clottey has good talents, but bad stamina and frail hands, a B fighter only. B+ is way too high for Clottey or Williams.
Thats being unfair Amsterdam. Williams looked clueless in there with a fellow southy. It was a style thing to me. Quintana had that right hook and we know Williams just dangles his chin if he does not fear you power.

Margarito is better overall. Haven't been impressed with Andrade's boxing skills at all.

Well...sure, because Andrade's boxing skills leave much to be desired...but as an overall package? As a professional boxer?

Margarito's two wins against Cintron are better than anything Andrade has done. The Clottey win was good too.

I am not sure about that, to be honest. Cintron had a punch, but outside of that...

Feliciano is about as good as Gomez...and he doesn't have the best of chins...

The first time Cintron was undefeated and the second time he was champion. Cintron's skills were also considered very good by a lot of people, especially with Steward training him and a lot of people were picking Cintron to win the second fight. Andrade hasn't had a major belt yet.

Yes, I know...still...Steward, well, I'm not impressed by anything he does; I think he's very overrated and a liability, really! And a belt in itself means very little...but anyway, yeah...fair enough.

Amsterdam proves once again why he's a ****in idiot. Let's see Margarito has actually beaten people in the top 10 and a belt holder and Andrade has done neither, but he's better than Margarito.

What the hell.

Some people here say Margarito due to Andrade's lack of pure boxing skills? What the **** is Margarito? Whitaker? Ali? Mayweather?
