El rubor es el tono enrojecido del rostro. Puede ser por salud, estado de ánimo o maquillaje. Viene del latín "ruber" (rojo), del que derivan otras palabras españolas como rúbrica, rubí, rubeola y rubio. El sonrojo siempre es consecuencia de una vergüenza (o "pena", como le dicen en algunas variedades, ¿creo que el antillano?). En cambio el rubor, pese a ...

Lucha refers to a struggle while Pelea refers to literal fighting. And even though lucha also refers the acting of wrestling, wrestling itself is a struggle in itself.

I think that Lucha has a broader meaning, while Pelea is a physical fight, a quarrel or discussion. For example you could use Lucha like Lucha contra el cáncer Lucha contra los elementos, nieve, lluvia, etc Lucha consigo mismo, para superar sus tentaciones.
