Default Henry Armstrong vs. Julio Cesar Chavez at 135

Who wins this savage infighting contest? As much as it offends my Mexican sensibilities, I have to pick Armstrong based on his higher workrate and severely underrated handspeed. Chavez would dish out some SERIOUS damage, though.

I havent seen a HUGE amount of Armstrong, but from what I have seen + his reputation, his work rate was incredible.

Chavez was weak NOT to boxers, but to volume punchers. he would stay too defensive and pick his shots too much.
Armstrong would take a lot of damage in the process, but I can see him outworking Chavez at very close range with shoeshine type punches and winning by decision.

does footage of Armstrong vs Arizmendi exist?

Chavez is an all-time great, Armstrong is an all-time God. There is a distinction. Armstrong would be better-tested against someone of the calibre of Duran. Chavez would make something of it, for sure, but he's outclassed here.
