Trout has pretty much accomplished what Mayweather has at 154. There's nothing at all saying Mayweather could beat either Trout or Canelo, yet hes ranked above them.

So basically, you're all saying: Mayweather is only no.1 because of name recognition, and because hes only just done a little more than the others by facing Cotto? Not no.1 because of skill. Fair enough. Though I dispute that because Trout has done what Mayweather has done at this weight.

In all, the bottom line is, he isn't the best of the division until proven otherwise
Some guys want to pretend that weight classes are alternate dimensions and that fights 5 or 8lbs removed do not exist on that plane. Just be a little truthful, and unbiased, and you'll see that Floyd at no1 is no stretch.
