I don't know I don't think Mayweather or Pacquaio has strong WW resume's. I guess Shane could be there he has some great wins.

I'd say Margarito would be in the Top 3 for the last era after all he was there for a long time dominating and was considered the best WW or one of the best for mutiple years.
I'd put Duran there, just because I'm a fan and I don't care how biased I am.

Of the 2000s, it's hard to argue against Mayweather and Margarito. Margarito for being the most consistently rated of the decade, and Mayweather for being the best fighter throughou. Pac has one win there, so I wouldn't even consider him. Mosley has Oscar and Margarito as high profile wins. Vernon Forrest has Mosley. Cotto has Mosley and Clottey maybe, if you want to mention him.


A third fighter during the 2000s is hard. No one really stuck around at the weight, except Margarito and Mayweather, most the guys I would think of have one or two good wins and that's it.
