    Both were very skilled pure boxers but sadly squandered their talent and never really reached their potentials. In your opinion who do you think applied better defense in their style?

    These guys are really enjoyable to watch when they perform at their finest. Really smooth operators.

    I think Zapata was a tad better when on point, but he had more distance between his best and worst.

    I think Zapata's run at light fly leasing up to Ursua was fantastic anyway. Beating te likes of Dodie Boy and Torres showed he was the real deal. And he still had some good work in him post-Chang.

    Definitely Zapata imo. Incredible reflexes, and head/upper body movement. Truly a defensive genius in the early 80s.
