Also, yes Marquez beating Pacquiao is greater than any single win Floyd has. But hey....Riddick Bowe beating Evander Holyfield is greater than any single win Larry Holmes has, is Riddick Bowe greater than Larry Holmes??? Hell no
Marquez' resume doesn't have the depth Manny and Floyd have.
Floyd has not beaten anyone in the top 100 all time greats in his prime.
Is that better for you?
If you want to talk strictly resume then no Marquez is not better, in my heart he is because I consider him 3-0-1 against Pacquiao but that's in my heart not on paper.
The subject isn't Marquez though, the subject is Pacquiao over Floyd and there is no debate who the greater fighter is currently. Wins over Guerrero, Canelo, Berto, etc won't change that. Even a win over Martinez is highly debatable.
Pacquiao > Floyd
It's a tough pill to swallow for you I'm sure, but it's the truth.
