    The Pedroza who ruined Ford vs a prime Marcel, who wins?

    Does Pedroza get his hometown ref? If so I'm definitely going with him

    Wellllllll, given they're both Panamanian, it'd make sense that the fights happens in their hometown.

    Hmmm. This is tough. As skilled as Marcel was and as impressive as I thought he was against Arguello, I've just seen more of Pedroza, quite frankly, so feel more confident with picking him. There was a slipperiness and slickness about Pedroza that Arguello didn't have and would probably trouble Marcel.

    I think.

    Ernesto Marcel was kayoed in round 10 by a young Roberto Duran on May 16 1970. Eusebio Pedroza was kayoed by Alfonso Zamora in round 2, on April 3 1976. Both fell prey to heavy hitters. Neto Marcel has the more experience against more quality opposition. Both are slick and are winners, but I do think that Marcel wins this one by a thin majority decision.

    Marcel on points for me in a great fight. They were similar fighters in some ways, both great in the slick Panamanian mould, but I think Marcel had a bit more bounce per ounce and showed himself to be a bit more well rounded and comfortable in establishing control against a wider array of styles despite Pedrozas long title reign.

    I’m wondering if this could be a bad style match up for Pedroza ...like Bernard Taylor

    Before I answer, I'll start by saying that it's CRIMINAL Marcel isn't in the HOF.

    I think Marcel in a close one due to styles. He was a bit quicker and more dynamic than Pedroza, and Pedroza have to lead rather than counterpunch gives Marcel a bit of an edge.

    Marcel - Duran was close fight, and referee stopped it without real reason.

    My default position on Pedroza match-ups tends towards El Alacran being the victor.

    But, being matched against Marcel makes this much less clear-cut.

    I really don't think I can separate them. Both were operators of the highest class.

    Marcel from SD or a draw. Especially in Panama City.

    One thing that most aren't considering is that Marcel was a pretty dirty and rough operator himself, when he wanted to be. He elbowed and headbutted Gomez numerous times despite completely shutting him down.

    This fight would be a lot dirtier and nastier than people expect.
