    I ll take Arguello. Better fundamentals better precision puncher. Arguello gets short changed in alot of these fantasy fights IMO

    Good match up.

    I'll have to think on this one. I would edge towards Saddler initially.

    Without doubt, Alexis takes this one.

    If you give him height, and arm length, and then include his incredible accuracy and power, he would destroy Saddler within 8 rounds. Saddler and Pryor have a some similarities, but without the infamous black bottle, Pryor would likely have lost as well. Saddler is not the windmill Pryor was either, he did not quite have the movement and needed to set more on his punches as well.

    Alexis will eat him up.

    Absolute war while it lasts but I think this is in The "Thin Mans" wheelhouse.

    Are we stipulating weight here - 126 or 130? I rate Saddler higher at featherweight than Arguello but in the battle of two explosive thin men I'm edging towards Nicaragua's finest, particularly at 130.

    Arguello by knockout. Height, accuracy and KO power in just about every punch he threw. I don't think Saddler could utilize his style as effectively as he normally did vs other opponents.
