    I thought after the first 2 or something rounds, Pryor was actually boxing arguello and using the fast jab and right and the odd combination and avoiding returns

    I don’t think it would be an inaccurate label.

    Pryor pushed the pace the whole fight. He threw 1428 punches to Arguello 928. When I think of a pressure fighter I don't always think of a unskilled guy just throwing punches but a guy applying true effective pressure. Some guys apply pressure with timing and power like Koysta Tzu, **** Tiger and GGG and others with speed and combination punching like Pryor and Calzaghe. Pryor was great at not only throwing combinations but he was constantly moving which disrupted AA's ability to set his feet and deliver his more textbook combos.

    If Ali is considered a boxer/puncher, it's him vs Frazier.
