He rarely faced bigger guys if he did at all.
But he should not b far from there either

When I came to place him it turned out 2 places over Peter , which is 1 over Ali

Although all are big names , the first 5 were smaller men.
An emphasis of this reasoning :
If Wladimir Klitschko fought Floyd Mayweather , who is undeniably better P4P , should such a thing prove him as a P4P fighter ?
Same for Floyd's move with Marquez.
And to the contrary : if Marquez moved up from featherweight to lightweight and stopped 2 champions there , whom were rightfully not considered great P4P fighters , was it enough to justify a boost in his P4P ranking ? definitely .
