Floyd - Resume above 135 oozes of cherry picking, carefully selected opponents. only fought 3-4 times since 2007 yet he's still the #1 P4P.
Canelo - he has literally done nothing but beat oversized or over matched opponents. His title is a complete joke.
Broner - Beat Perez got a gift against PDL, failed to make weight against Escobedo. Beat up a good lightweight and he's placed in the top 5 or 6 P4Ps? above Mares, Froch, Guerrero etc. He's the definition of overrated.
Marquez - One of the best combination punchers of all time. Even better than Joe Louis (who I hold in high regard), He' still regarded as a top P4P even at almost 40. His status when compared to other fighters comes off as underrated to me. Infact all Floyd's fan base know him for is losing a UD to Floyd. That's it, that's his entire career to them. IMO his legacy is underrated.. All every says is he's slow, he's never had defense, power, or that he's flat footed. Mainly because they've only seen fights he had when he was in his mid to late 30's People forget he was young at one point
Castillo - since he's still fighting i'll include him, although he may not be much currently. His legacy gets underrated, I still consider him the greatest LW since Whitaker.
Mares - He's beaten top opponent after top opponent, yet all people talk about are the low blows. He's not even in the top 10 P4P's despite fighters with weaker resumes like Broner being in the top 5.
Guerrero - If you've followed him for a while you'll know how capable and skilled he really is. He's the type of fighter that can compete with anyone. If he's out gunned, or they're faster he'll adjust even if it's going outside of his comfort zone which we don't see alot of fighters do.
Froch - Despite a lose to Ward he's still a top fighter and should be in the top 10 P4P's
