    Arguello

    If the board question about "...favorite technician to watch..." were appiled to el boxeo, he'd be high on my list. Classic stance, classic hand position, great weight shift and hip turn w/ the right cross.

      Yes he was outstanding technical boxer Oscar Delahoya reminded me of a young Arguello in his youth do you agree sir?????

        DeLaHoya didn't remind me of Arguello (few modern guys do), but Arguello's stance and movements reminded me of footage of Joe Louis.

            Of course, Arguello's most epic battles arguably came against Cincinnatian Aaron Pryor. Here's a photo gallery from the local paper yesterday.

              Likeness

              Merely in the way they stalked and sized up their foes- Joe packed more power. It's a footwork/balance thing.

                Yes I remember their epic battles in my opinion Pryor never got the credit as a boxer he should have gotten he was a smaller version of Tyson knockout power with either hand.

                      Arguello's first championship fight with Alfredo Escalera stands out as one of the best fights of the last few decades.
