After seeing an even older Marquez just arguably beat Pacquiao, the supposed #1 WW at the same weight, Floyd does deserve some credit for that win. Marquez proved he could fight well at the weight against the #1 fighter at that weight, supposedly.
So yes, one must give Floyd a little credit for that, but it's by no means his best win. It's a very solid win though now.
Floyd didn't even make contractual weight for the fight!! But PAC did.
