Well the meteoric rise in weight, as well as his ability to carry his power, his very impressive. He beat the living **** out of a Barrera who would show that he wasn't yet done. He has a contestable but legitimate win over Marquez as well. The Morales wins don't do anything for me and the Cotto win isn't as good as it would have been if the Miguel had never fought Margarito, but that's still a pretty viable win. He only has one loss that's worth talking about and that is to a true all time great giving his last great performance. He's overrated by the media, but so are all athletes who are great in their times. I hear people talking about Tom Brady being the greatest QB of all time, a trend that seems to have caught fire after Monday's (dreadful) game. It's bound to happen. Just go to NSB after a fight, any fight, and you can see it for yourself. I heard people actually trying to say that Carl Froch was the GOAT at 168...honestly.
