Hernandez (hadn't lost in 4 years, would go on to be a world title holder and fight Morales), Chavez (hadn't lost in 4 years, would go on to be a world title and fight Morales as well), Castillo (coming off win over a prime Johnston, hadn't lost in over 3-4 years), N'dou (hadn't lost in like 7 years), Hatton (unbeaten, top ten P4P, had fought at 147 before), Marquez (showed he could beat Pac at 144, only losses recently had been controversial ones to John and Pac), Mosley (coming off KO wins over Mayorga and Margarito, a fighter people said Floyd was ducking), and Ortiz (coming off 5 straight wins, one over previously unbeaten Berto, and a draw he should have won against Peterson, which looks great since Peterson upset Khan)???
Manfredy, Corrales, C. Hernandez, Chavez, Castillo, N'dou, Judah, Hatton, and Ortiz were all in their primes when Floyd fought them, and only Judah was coming off a loss or bad performance.
G. Hernandez and J.M. Marquez were past their primes-still good when Floyd fought them. Hernandez was seen as the top 130 lb fighter in the world, hadn't lost in 3 years since lsoing his only fight to De La Hoya at Lightweight. Marquez was fighting at 144, which is why people said it didn't count as a good win, but now people have changed that opinion, because Marquez arguably just beat Pacquiao at the same weight. The only fights Marquez had lost in recent memory were to John in Indonesia, where almost EVERYONE had Marquez winning, and against Pacquiao, where again....almost everyone had Marquez winning.
Gatti, Baldomir, De La Hoya, and Mosley were past their primes, but they were all coming off wins when Floyd fought them. Gatti hadn't lost in 3 years, 5 straight wins. Baldomir hadn't lost in 8 years, was coming off a huge win over a prime Zab Judah. De La Hoya hd lostot Hopkins in 04', came back after 2 years and KO'd Mayorga, was seen as the top 154 lb fighter in the world. Mosley hadn't lost in 3 years, was coming off KO wins over Mayorga and Margarito, the last time we saw a somewhat prime Margarito.
