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

    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.

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

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