    At Featherweight ?
    Manny burst on to the scene here , whereas it could be said , Arguello had his last great fights here .
    But who takes it ,15 rounds ?

    The last time this was done I tentatively picked Pacquaio as having a stylistic advantage. However, this is at feather. Pac was a beast, but full of flaws, whilst Arguello had his holes, as old Olivares showed.
    Cant decide a winner now. Definitely a good scrap. Leaning towards Arguello due to Marquez bout at feather.

    This ain't ending well for Manny at 126 in a 15 rounder.

    Arguello by late KO.

    So was Arguello.

    Pryor would get Pacquiao to fight inside and KO him.

    The Pac hysteria has become overblown in the past two weeks. Keith Thurman is a bum, relax.

    Pryor would have beaten Pac.

    Arguello would at some point and that righthand and PAC is in trouble.

    Arguello at Featherweight. Fairly even at super featherweight. Pacquiao favoured at lightweight and above
