Mosley's lightweight legacy
Where does Sugar Shane rank historically as a lightweight? Top 10? Surely he's a consensus top 20; and how does he fair if he stayed at lightweight? To me, he could very well still be lightweight king. The counterpunchers are the only ones that stylistically could trouble Mosley but I think Marquez is too slow at lightweight to hang with Shane. Same thing for Casamayor, I don't think he's special at LW. I don't see the rest of the lightweight crop troubling him much.
edit for clarity: To my knowledge, the other lightweights are mostly come forward guys who don't have the size to bull Mosley around. Great match ups for him I'd say.

Mosley doesn't have the resume to be that high all time, but damn if he didn't smoke everyone at lightweight. Probably ended up hurting his career, he was so strong and fell in love with his power and now he doesn't use the boxing skills his natural physical ability allow him to use.
