    Ortiz would probably have to ride some heavy weather at several points throughout the fight, but I'd bank on him to time Pryor too frequently and eventually get a read on him enough to win a clear decision in a war I think. He'd let his hands go more frequently than Arguello did and lock down Pryor at mid to close range using his great strength. Sharper head and upper body movement than the old version of El Flaco too. And if Pryor decided to use his considerable ability on the retreat and mix things up, I still think Ortiz would be able to pin him down from range. Great competitive fight though with shifts in momentum, just with Ortiz at his best eventually taking over down the stretch.

    This is a good analysis. I'd probably slightly favor The Hawk, BUT... I can see your scenario playing out.

    Ortiz.

    I just think he’s flat out better and whilst his best work was mostly at 135 I feel he’d beat Pryor at 140. He’d handle the pressure and his intelligence would enable him to overcome an early deficit.

    Interesting bout. Aaron Pryor moved up from Ltweight to get a shot at the the Jr. Welter title......and Ortiz moved down from his title holding era at Jr. Welter to his legendary Ltweight era.

    Ortiz traded some wins and losses at top level Jr. Welter with names like Kenny Lane and

    In conclusion, taking Ortiz at Lightweight, and Pryor at Jr. Welterweight.

    Ortiz is a legend, but the Hawk picks most eggs clean at 140. Especially considering Carlos didn't exactly buzz through his own 140 era, picking up loses (but also wins) to Lane, Lui and Busso
