but if we're gonna talk about past prime fighters right now, i'd rather see arce fight than morales. Arce could still go a a top level, but man, watching morales or that shell of whats in the ring is crazy now.
Your 100% right, I still spar and I will be 40 in a couple of years and I know what to do but I can't quite do it like I once did. I'm just a milisecond slower and that makes all the difference.
Arce can still fight, not at the highest level but he will fight one more time in Mexico. Morales has been done for about 7 years now and I was shocked at how competitive he was vs Danny Garcia the first time out. I think if Garcia doesn't land that knockdown, he loses the fight IMO.
Watching past prime fighters is tough man.
