He had 3 defeats and two were against Morales & Barrera and the other was a title fight. Him & Pacquiao were close to fight at Super Bamtamweight in 2002, how does that go?
Think he was very good, at best. Soild, earnest-type of fighter....but not very special. I don't mean to insult him as I think guys like him are kind of the foundation of the sport.
