    Between 2 master boxers @ WW or LMW, who do you favor in this chess match?

    Might have to think hard on this one.

    Great match up @Flo_Raiden , especially at 154. I still pick Rodriguez; he was such a class fighter with just as high ring IQ. I think his work under Wilfredo jab would bother him throughout.

    Benitez was awesome in that bout, and that KO was great. Hope was a real solid champion, too, with good skills as a southpaw.

    I do believe that Luis could mirror some of Hearns fight over Wilfredo and keep him at the end of his punches for most of the fight. Luis certainly had the speed, skill, and ring IQ to do this.
