Is Shane Mosley a B level fighter?
When Mosley decides to hang up the gloves
1. How will you remember him?
2. What's his biggest win?
3. I have heard a lot of fans consider him a "B" Level fighter...do you guys agree?

no, he's an A or A-, he will be remembered as one of the best of his era who fought everyone and ducked no one.
Oscar De La Hoya 1 is forever his biggest win

he's a hall of famer but he's nowhere near the top 100 of all time (what i call ATG's)
his best division was LW
his best win is undoubtedly his first dub over oscar. i'd actually say his second best win may appear to be antonio margarito, but there are some dubious circumstances surrounding that obviously
who knows how often margarito loaded his gloves? he's an unkown quantity at this stage. his recent fights (when we know for certain that he is wearing legal wraps,) dont show the devastating power
again, i go back to this every time
watch margarito's fight with golden johnson
and if you have to, watch it twice in a row. it's one round. margarito's punches are nothing like that. he's hitting uncharacteristically hard against johnson if you look at the work he did in the mosley and pacquiao and second cotto fights. they really dont even look like the same punches or puncher.
he was considered the best fighter on the planet after he beat oscar de la hoya

of course the W over oscar was his best, and the exposure of margarito second best...
i want to know who are the fighters there in the B level? im not sure what you really mean, but i think he was / is good enough for enshrinement at the IBHOF...

Oscar DeLa Hoya definitely his biggest win,
love his style of boxing, plus has always
been a stand up boxer, represented the
sport of boxing to the fullest
never ducked anyone...
He gets an A from me

Definitely a hall of famer, which is the very definition of an A-fighter.
