If Guillermo Rigondeaux and Abner Mares fought...

Where would the winner place on your p4p list? Considering both are now generally regarded as top 10, I usually see somewhere in the 6-10 range. Would the winner crack your top 3? What would each man need to do to be in consideration for the p4p 1 spot?

Who would win is a far more interesting question.
I personally think Rigondeaux would win but there is some bias here. I reckon it'd be his hardest career fight though and Mares would do better than Donaire did.

Conversely I reckon Donaire sparks Mares.

Who do you think would win and where woud you rate the winner p4p?
I think the winner would crack the top 3 for me
Then what would each man need to do to flirt with that number 1 spot? Just continue beating top level fighters?

If Rigo gets wins over Terrazas, Leo Santa Cruz and Mares it'd be very easy to make a case for him being p4p1. Likewise if Mares beats say Rigo, Gary Russell and Mikey Garcia.
I think it's a winnable fight for both guys. I just see Rigo landing his counters consistently and lowering Mares' punch output to win a close decision.
If this or rigo-santa cruz were the fights to end the promotional cold war stateside i'd be very happy
Just a shame the promotional cold war now involves tv networks, so it's really not that possible.
