Yeah, you can't steal a decision If you get knocked out....

One of those scenarios where Pryor was kicking himself.

Arguello is an all time favourite so I'm a bit biased but I reckon he would give Duran a great fight at 135,Sanchez a great war at 126 and would tip AA to beat Sanchez at 130 which was his best division.

he could've caught up to Davis over 15 rounds and also beaten the likes of Arroyo,Paul,Kenty and O'Grady.

Whitaker and Chavez over 135 not so much but under 135 then he had a very good chance to do the job over 15 not 12.

Lesser fighters have won titles, and Davis would have too if the right things were in place.
