More:



Alexis Arguello travels to Panama to compete for the WBA featherweight title, he fights Ernesto Marcel who defeats him via unanimous decision, and successfully defends his title, it is likely experience was the key factor in victory, Arguello was only 21 in this fight, Arguello was strong in the early rounds, and finshed in an impressive way, but Marcel dominanted the middle rounds, with a particularly big seventh round standing out, giving the chaallenger a torrid time. After the fight, a humble champion in Marcel gave him his clearly talented opponent a lot of praise, he said 'Arguello has a strong punch and is a good boxer. Someday he will be world champion'. Marcel retired after this fight, he was young, but he obviously felt as though he had accomplished all he set out to accomplish.

Alexis gives a good account for a young fighter, but is clearly beaten.

Good fight, if Marcel did not retire young one can only imagine how his career might be better remembered today.
