Default Jose Luis Castillo: Underrated Mexican fighter, underrated fighter in his time?????

It seems like from loads of people that Jose Luis Castillo doesn't get the props he deserves as a really good fighter, and probably the best LW of his era. I saw someone literally lump him in with Augustus, Gatti, and Ward, which is just flat out wrong in my opinion.

Castillo is a 2x LW Champ, and a lineal LW champ.

He had wins over Stevie Johnston (WBC LW Champ/#1 LW), Cesar Bazan (Top 10 LW), Juan Lazcano (#1 LW), Joel Casamayor (#2 LW), Julio Diaz (Top 10 LW), and Corrales (WBC/WBO/RING LW Champ).

He should also arguably have a win over Floyd Mayweather, one of the top 1-2 fighters in this entire era, a certified Top 30-50 ATG.

He just doesn't seem to get the same amount of love as other Mexican fighters on here, and seems to be extremely underrated by many on here. Anyone else agree???
