Chavez Jr, Macklin, Barker, weren't seen as much of a threat or dangerous opponents by anyone. Macklin and Barker did better than people thought they would do, doesn't make them dangerous. Chavez Jr had one good round, doesn't make him dangerous.
In the end, they each have 4 dangerous fights in the last 5 years. Hatton in 2007 is like 6 years ago. Since I mentioned Dzinzurl for Martinez, who was coming up in weight, I also mentioned Marquez for Floyd who was coming up in weight.
Betting odds for the Chavez fight were 2 to 1 at the time. Those were closest odds for any recent PPV fight. On average, people gave Chavez a 40% to win in this poll
