Joe didn't fight a legit and good fight until Jeff Lacy in 2006, when he was 34 years old. Everything else before that was against fringe contenders who either were in the Top 10 barely or not at all, or Eubank way past his best.
Floyd fought his first legit big fight when he was 21 against lineal champion Genaro Hernandez.
Floyd has a deep enough resume and anyone with his resume would be considered an ATG, especially with the dominance he's sustained over 14-15 years now. Floyd and Manny both have much deeper resume's than Marquez. I'm not taking anything away from Marquez, his resume isn't quite as good as Manny or Floyd.
